SCRANTON — The Leadership Lackawanna #HistoricScranton Core Class of 2016 recently hosted an unveiling of its yearlong project at the Radission Lackawanna Station Hotel, to debut their catalog of protected properties and raise awareness of the importance of historic preservation.

A free public First Friday event was held in May celebrating Scranton’s architectural history.

The project was the compilation of all Historical Architectural Review Board (HARB) properties in a free online, publicly accessible resource.

The group vigorously researched each building’s history through resources at the Lackawanna Historical Society and categorized each property according to its designation as a protected property and includes the building name, address, year built, architect, architectural style, building materials, notable features, historical significance, nonconforming elements as well as a current picture and a historic picture, where available.

The complete list of properties serves as a community resource to raise awareness of HARB and highlight the beauty of historical architecture within the City of Scranton.
