What would it be like to have a town founded in your name? While pondering what feats of bravery you’d have to accomplish to win such a prize, prop your feet up on the bed of one of the hotels in Greensburg, PA and plan what you’d like to explore first outside those four walls. Named after Nathanael Greene, a major general of the Continental Army in the American Revolutionary War, this city is full of history, quaint 1950s architecture, and busy industry. Put your mark on its streets when you journey to Greenburg, a borough tucked in southwest Pennsylvania.
History and inspiration reach a small confluence in this city. Combining here in the Westmoreland Museum of American Art, a short trip by bike or one of our rental cars in Greensburg, you’ll find a trove of artwork by some well-known and very nearly-known American painters, sculptors, and more. Appreciation here being a form of time travel, you can view pieces from before the founding of the nation to the 1950s. Hotels near Greensburg, PA, put you within easy distance of St. Clair Park, where the local symphony performs their Summer Sounds Concert Series annually. The trill of flutes and clarinets, low and languorous notes of the cello, and the elemental beat of timpani drums launch themselves through the evening air to you, relaxed on the cool park lawn or a soft blanket. Sometimes there’s nothing better than being a stranger in a new city.
