Watt & Shand Store Façade

WS facade compressedThis iconic landmark was saved from being demolished due, in part, to the preservation efforts of the Historic Preservation Trust.  The façade could have been lost when the Lancaster County Convention Center and Marriott Hotel were built. Fortunately, the Preservation Trust was able to work with developers to incorporate a piece of the past into a contemporary hotel design. The preserved facade serves as an example of direct action that helped save a locally significant architectural landmark.
