Eons of erosion gave the city its signature bumpy topography, and each of Pittsburgh’s ridges and promontories has a story to tell. From Coal Hill that changed its name to “the Hill” that needs no name, to from hidden-in-plain-sight Monument Hill to mostly-obliterated Grant’s Hill, discover fascinating hilltop tales rescued from the forgotten pages of our region’s history.

About the presenter: Mark Houser is a frequent Pittsburgh Magazine contributor who writes and speaks about the Pittsburgh’s history. You can find more stories at his website,
