Subseries 1. Jones & Laughlin Steel Company Town Revitalization, 1946-1948

Scope and Content Notes:

A project of local significance to Pittsburgh was the Jones & Laughlin Steel Company town revitalization. Jones & Laughlin Steel hired Griswold for the recreation and restoration of many of its company towns throughout western and central Pennsylvania, which produced much of the coal and coke used in the production of steel. Griswold was consulted to head the revitalization project in the company towns of Vestaburgh, Richeyville, Bobtown, Blairton, and Denbo; he completed these revitalization projects between 1946 and 1947.
