In this extended tour, you will have an in-depth experience of two of Downtown Pittsburgh’s most significant buildings: H. H. Richardson’s Allegheny County Courthouse (completed 1888) and Henry Hornbostel’s City-County Building (completed 1917). The tour includes interior spaces that generally are not open to the public, giving participants an appreciation of the extraordinary design creativity, craftsmanship, and artistry that brought these buildings into being. Standing side by side on Pittsburgh’s grand civic boulevard, the Courthouse and the City-County Building provide a brilliant comparison of approaches to meeting the architectural needs of a growing city.

Tour Meeting Point: Corner of Grant Street and Forbes Avenue (Pittsburgh, PA 15219), near the parking lot

Tour Ending Point: City-County Building, 414 Grant Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15219
