Why should the beautiful die?

Church of the Good Shepherd, Hazelwood

Church of the Good Shepherd

Certainly unique in Pittsburgh, this Episcopal church was a design by William Halsey Wood, whose only other work here that Father Pitt knows about is the Church of the Ascension in Shadyside. The Church of the Good Shepherd was built in 1891; it is now up for sale, so anyone with some money has a chance at a signature building that looks like nothing else in the city. After decades of decline, this part of Hazelwood is moving up in the world: just a couple of blocks away is a branch of La Gourmandine, the delightful French bakery. Wouldn’t you like to live or work in a landmark building just a short stroll from a French bakery?

  1. Hello, Father Pitt: I’m in the final stages of editing a book on architect William Halsey Wood and will take you up on the generous offer to use your photos. Those I took years ago are crap.
