1. Greensburg Downtown Historic District: Penn-Albert Hotel. The Penn-Albert Hotel opened in 1923, one of the city's tallest structures, now used as housing for senior citizens. A ballroom ("Crystal Room") was on the mezzanine level, and at the very top there was a roof garden for dancing and other events. The two highest guestroom floors, marked by a decorative frieze on the facade, were initially used for suites designed for long-term occupancy.
