Highland Park Farmhouse Ribbon-Cutting Ceremony


Highland Park's historic Farmhouse was damaged by fire in Spring 2000, but has been brought back to life by the funding and efforts of the community and local governments.

The ribbon-cutting ceremony officially reopening the Farmhouse was held on July 15, 2002. Pittsburgh Mayor Tom Murphy, City Councilman Jim Ferlo, Gary Moshier and others involved in the project spoke at the ceremony.

Fire damaged the Farmhouse in March 2000.

The Farmhouse reopened just over 2 years later, after extensive repairs and a new paint job.

The Farmhouse looks great from every angle.

The new playground at the Farmhouse includes swings, benches and things for kids to climb on. The playground surface features images of farm animals.

These kids have found time to try out the new playground before the ceremony begins.
