  Preservation of St. Nicholas Church

After a long, hard battle, Northside Leadership Conference and the Preserve Croation Heritage Foundation lost its fight to save the historic St. Nicholas Church. 

On Oct. 5, 2012, The city of Pittsburgh withdrew its appeal of a previous court decision that allowed for demolition of the church.

Despite protest from preservation groups, city residents and parishioners, demolition began January 9, 2013.
