AAA Editor Notes
Flatiron Building Heritage Center, at 69 Market St., features exhibits about Westward Expansion (National Road era) and the Industrial Era. Regional industrial history is explored with displays about steamboats; the river; the railroad; coal; and the National Road, the first federally funded road. The Frank L. Melega Art Museum features multimedia art representing local industries. The 1830s Flatiron Building, so named for its curved front facade and peaked roof resembling an old-fashioned clothing iron, is of architectural interest.
