Mexican War Streets Historic District

Pittsburgh, PA

The Mexican War Streets National Register Historic District is located on the North Side of Pittsburgh, PA. The district was initially listed in 1975 and expanded in 2008 and 2012. Extending across nearly 30 acres, the district contains buildings dating from the mid-19th to early 20th centuries that are primarily designed in Revivalist styles. The buildings are primarily low-scale residential properties, with prominent bisecting commercial corridors. The district is significant as an architecturally intact, middle-class residential neighborhood.

Beginning in 2011, Powers & Company began the process of extending the existing boundary of the Mexican War Streets National Register Historic District to include an additional block. The purpose of the extension was to ultimately pursue Federal Historic Preservation Tax Incentives for several buildings within the adjusted boundary, which Powers & Company successfully obtained.
