PITTSBURG The names of doctors and other professionals who served Pittsburg in a bygone era still mark the frosted, textured glass panels on doors to upstairs rooms in the old National Bank Building at the intersection of Fourth and Broadway.
In August, Pittsburg State University students will claim the rooms behind those doors, merging a piece of history with their future and the future of the city and university.
The old bank building in downtown Pittsburg is one of four historic buildings being remodeled for student housing and commercial use. Called Block 22, the $18 million project is a joint effort between PSU, the City of Pitts-burg and a private developer.
