Lily of the Valley National Historic District
In January of 2003, the “Lily of the Valley” National Historic Register District” was officially listed by the National Park Service. The nomination work was prepared by the Taylor and Taylor firm from Brookville, and was funded by the Ridgway Heritage Council and the Stackpole-Hall Foundation. The district, as defined by the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission, includes the downtown business district and a substantial residential section on the south side of Ridgway. There are approximately 730 contributing historic properties in the district. The district is roughly bounded by the Borough line on the South, Hyde Avenue Extension, East Main Street and Sherman Avenue on the east, Erie Alley, Race Street, Main Street and Elm Street on the north, and North Broad Street, State Street and Water Street on the west.
