Restoration on the River: Life returns to the Moffitt Mansion.

Last month, the employees of WebpageFX moved into the fully renovated Moffitt Mansion at 1703-05 N. Front Street in Harrisburg.

The re-location of the company from Carlisle marked not only a significant development for the city, but a major milestone in the history of the dressed blue limestone mansion, which long ago was divided into a warren of small offices, then fell into disrepair. For many years, it even served as the home of the former Midtown magisterial justice’s office.

WCI Partners, Urban Interiors and Trinity Construction now have brought the mansion back to life, restoring and opening it up to serve the needs of WebpageFX, an Internet/Web design firm.
