The former Galloway Mansion and Moose Lodge, 405 E. 5th St., was the center of the DYI Network show “Salvage Dawgs” who combed the historic property to salvage vintage pieces.






The show’s hosts, Robert Kulp and Mike White, recover everything from doors, windows, mantels and more.

According to the show’s website, once items are recovered, the team sells valuable pieces to a wide range of clients, from construction workers to high-end interior designers, who use them to restore other historical buildings and add character to newer structures.



The show’s eleventh season is scheduled to kickoff Monday at 9 p.m. on the DIY Network.

According to “Salvage Dawgs” branding and promotions director, the first episode airing Monday features the interior of the Moose Lodge building and the second episode, scheduled to premiere Monday, November 18, features the exterior work.











Before the Moose, the mansion was owned by the Galloway family who found fortune as Pennsylvania oil tycoons.

The Galloway daughter, Grace, was a singer that regularly played at the Chautauqua Institution. Grace died of tuberculosis at age 27 in 1898.

Her father commissioned a statue in Grace’s memory at Lakeview Cemetery. A Pittsburgh artist used Grace’s last portrait to model a statue after her.

The mystery surrounding Grace and her statue has persisted for decades.

  1. the building is still standing there and looks terrible with this and that missing. the death of grace and the statue isn’t a mystery just many yrs of the wrong stories being told. she died of tuberculosis , wasn’t dating she was in another state at school. the statue was constructed from a pic in a prom dress by an italian sculpture. put in glass to protect the expensive marbled statue. the story can easily be found by googling it.
