Open house at renovated building

The Oil City Main Street program and the Oil Region Alliance hosted an open house Wednesday at the former Salvation Army building at 229 Elm St. Alliance director John Phillips is pictured pointing out some of the historic features in the newly renovated offices. The space is the new home for Kathy Bailey's Main Street program and for the Alliance's Marilyn Black. The building received an Historic Preservation Award last month for the adaptive reuse of the first and second floors. (By Richard Sayer)
