|Purpose||To support and encourage the preservation of historic buildings, landmarks, districts, structures, and neighborhoods in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA.|

In 1966, PHLF established the Revolving Fund for Preservation with a $100,000 grant from the Sarah Scaife Foundation. PHLF used the grant to purchase, restore and renovate historic inner-city properties primarily in the North Side and South Side neighborhoods of Pittsburgh, which were rented or sold to low- and moderate-income families.
Allegheny County Survey
PHLF was the first historic preservation group in the nation to undertake a countywide survey of architectural landmarks, which Co-Founders Arthur P. Ziegler, Jr. and James D. Van Trump did in 1965.

The Pittsburgh History & Landmarks Foundation studied buildings in the Broadway Avenue district with the intent of spurring activity along the Port Authority T line. "We would like to see a full, transit-oriented development that would include a grocery store," foundation President Arthur P. Ziegler Jr. said.
