PITTSBURGH - DID YOU KNOW?
Did you know that Pittsburgh was named one of the best cities for architecture from Travel & Leisure?  Pittsburgh’s history, from military outpost to industrial giant, shows in many of its historic structures throughout the city. The churches, mansions, theaters, skyscrapers, and other historic buildings show the brilliance of architects of yesterday and today. The three rivers and the rolling hills provide a beautiful backdrop to the work of such architects as Frank Lloyd Wright, Henry Hobson Richardson, and Philip Johnson.
