Greensburg's Main Street Memories

Then and Now


From the discovery of large soft coal deposits in the early 1900s to the development of two major shopping malls on the outskirts of town in the 1960s and 1970s, the one constant throughout the history of Greensburg has been change, despite its long-lasting consequences for the city, both positive and negative.
