LHV and First Friday
On First Friday – after enjoying all of the art on display inside all of our venues – step outside and LOOK UP! And enjoy the art in our beautiful and often unique architecture in our downtown buildings.
Architecture tells the story of Scranton’s heyday! A story and heritage that has fed the city’s revitalization.
Today, Scranton is experiencing a renaissance in the footprint of its former glory. Former coal company offices are now departments at Universities, a grand railroad station is a magnificent hotel, and commercial and office buildings are now modern and luxury apartments.
World renowned architects like Raymond Hood, Joel Amsden, and Kenneth Murchison designed some of the most beautiful and unique buildings in our downtown using the talent of old-world craftsmanship that has
stood the test of time.
Enjoy all of the work at our First Friday venues this summer – then step outside…and LOOK UP!
The Lackawanna Heritage Valley National and State Heritage Area (LHV) is located in Northeastern Pennsylvania. Based in Scranton, the heritage area encompasses the watershed of the Lackawanna River in Lackawanna, Susquehanna, Wayne, and Luzerne counties.
