Pittsburgh History & Landmarks Foundation is offering a Live Virtual Architecture Tour of Western Shadyside. Shadyside is a veritable museum of the forms and styles of domestic architecture built in Pittsburgh’s East End between the 1860s and 1920s. Docents will explain how innovations in transportation, growth of the middle class, and the initiative of significant people combined to produce Western Shadyside’s stellar architecture.
Ranging across styles from the Second Empire to Arts & Crafts, the tour explores single-family and multi-family dwellings, individual homes and planned developments, and main streets and cul-de-sacs. A deeper look at a home featured in an early-twentieth-century memoir rounds out the excursion into this lovely neighborhood.
The live Tour of Western Shadyside will be held virtually on Wednesday, January 13 from 2:00 to 3:30 pm via Zoom. For more information, or to purchase your ticket, visit the Virtual Architecture Tour of Western Shadyside event page. Once you purchase a ticket, you will receive an email with a link to Zoom at 9:00 am on the day of the tour.
