THE STORY:

Cast Iron Strong is a project to help save and revitalize Brownsville, PA. Every town has a story, but some must be told and endure. Brownsville has a rich history including, the first cast iron bridge built in the US, the National highway (first toll road) approved by Thomas Jefferson runs right through town, the town led the way in seamboat building,  coal and coke industries, the unofficial "prototype" for the flatiron buildings made so popular in NYC, was first built in Brownsville, a town that was key in driving the industrialization of Pittsburgh, and these are just a few highlights. However with steel, coal, coke, and river transportation industries are either gone or limited, Brownsville as fallen into decay. It is a town that must be saved. Cast Iron Strong will be a collection of integrated initiatives designed to create awareness and investment back into Brownsville to ensure its future will be as compelling and impactful as its past. The four core projects will be 1) The Cast Iron Strong gallery to create an inspirational photographic gallery of vintage images in contrast to current images to draw interest and fundraising. The gallery will be presented regionally to expand awareness of Brownsville; 2) street facing activities to show progress in town by improving historical buildings on Market Street (the Town's "main" street); 3) utilize funds to support improvements to the BARC museum artifacts and resource center and finally 4) create the annual Cast Iron Festival to bring the spirit of Brownsville forward to a new begining.
