GRANT WRITING PROJECT
The Searights Tollhouse is a historic toll house on United States Route 40, the former route of the historic National Road, north of Uniontown, Pennsylvania. It was built in 1835 and is one of two surviving tollhouses (of the original six) built by the state of Pennsylvania to collect tolls along the portion of the road that passed through the state. The Searights Tollhouse was declared a National Historic Landmark in 1964.
Because historic preservation helps to tell stories of the past, it was important for this structure to undergo some renovations. McMillen Engineering prepared restoration plans for the replacement of the roof structure and windows on the Historic Searights Tollhouse.
Project scope for the Searights Tollhouse restoration included:
Coordination with PHMC
Historic Preservation Plans
