The Westmoreland Museum of American Art was established in 1949 because of one woman’s vision.  Mary Marchand Woods, a long time resident of Greensburg, saw the community’s need for an important cultural institution.  To make this vision a reality, she bequeathed her entire estate so that a museum facility could be built on her family’s property in the heart of Greensburg.  The building, state of the art at the time, opened its doors in 1959. The staff and trustees of The Westmoreland have spent the last 20 years creating a museum experience that is both inviting and engaging to visitors.  In support of that vision, the Expanding What’s Possible Expansion and Endowment Campaign has been launched. This project will improve gallery space, expand educational facilities and enhance visitors’ amenities. The project, scheduled for completion in the Summer of 2015, is the most transformative moment in The Westmoreland’s history.  The expansion and renovation will create a state of the art facility, honoring Mrs. Woods’ vision of a world class cultural institution in the city of Greensburg and creating a building in which American art will be exhibited, studied and celebrated.

The project is scheduled for completion in March of 2015.
