Pittsburgh's Early History - Emerald View Park - 04/23/22

Saturday, April 23, 2022
1:00 PM - 4:00 PM
Meet at the Point of View Statue on Grandview Avenue at Sweetbriar Street, 15211
People often think that Pittsburgh history begins with the steel industry and the period of heavy pollution. But it was the 100 years prior to this time that is perhaps even more interesting when it was a vital focal point on the old frontier. Please join living historian and community activist, John McNulty, as we explore the dramatic and often times tumultuous beginning of this unique city while traversing some of its most beautiful and scenic terrain in Emerald View Park.

Please register for this event.
