WAYNESBURG, PA – First Federal Savings and Loan Association of Greene County recently donated a house in Monongahela Township to the Greene County Redevelopment Authority, which plans to renovate the home and offer it for sale.

The 2-bedroom, 1-bathroom house on Duquesne Street in Greensboro had fallen into serious disrepair, but the hope is for the Redevelopment Authority to fully rehabilitate and sell the home.

“It needs a lot of work, but we’re confident we can rehab the house,” said Dave Calvario, Redevelopment Authority executive director. “It would make a nice starter home.”

Built in 1922, the house was originally part of the coal patch town for Duquesne Light, which operated the nearby Warwick Mine.

As the Redevelopment Authority this year continues working on other homes and buildings across the county, Calvario anticipates the Greensboro home being renovated and ready to be put on the market by late fall.

“We are very thankful to First Federal for donating this house and for being good local stewards and investing in our community,” Calvario said. “We hope one day someone can say they’re proud to live there.”
