Project Partners: Crawford County Industrial Park(CCIP) & Allegheny College Project Supported by: CCIP, Allegheny College, Heinz Family Endowment



The original concept for The Green Room was developed in 1997. In 2000, Phase I of this plan was implemented at the Crawford County Industrial Park (a restored industrial center) where an abandoned lobby was transformed into a "green" break room. Allegheny College interns painted a 33' x 17' mural that explores the history of the site. An historical photo essay provides information about the factory's past, and sculptural tables and chairs provide a place to sit and relax. Everything used in this project was recycled or represented sustainable practices.
