During the Observatory Hill History Tour, you can take a tour back in time to explore one of Pittsburgh’s greatest neighborhoods, Observatory Hill.
Local history guides, led by Allegheny City Historian David Grinnell, will take you on a fantastic trolley trip around Observatory Hill sharing stories of the first quarter of the 20th Century when the neighborhood was experiencing a building boom. If you enjoy a stroll, you can accompany tour guides down Riverview Avenue, passing by homes that have been on house tours in recent years, across from the Byzantine Catholic Seminary to the Riverview Park Visitor’s Center. Learn more about the park which was founded in 1894 and the Allegheny Observatory of the University of Pittsburgh.
The Observatory Hill History Tour will take place on Sunday, July 17, from 1:00 to 5:00 pm. For more information, or to purchase your ticket, visit the Observatory Hill History Tour event page.
