Located about seven miles west of Pittsburgh, Carnegie was once a commercial center for surrounding farming villages and coal-mining camp towns. It is now considered a suburb of Pittsburgh, but Main Street remains a vibrant urban corridor of small businesses, many in revitalized historic buildings. Complementing the business district are a number of churches, including a Russian Orthodox church and a Ukrainian Orthodox church that stand side by side and work in harmony, even as their home countries are at war. You will learn about the role of PHLF’s Historic Religious Properties program in safeguarding these churches for future generations and tour the splendid interior of St. Peter and St. Paul Ukrainian Orthodox Church.

In addition to this classic mix of neighborhood architectural types, the tour includes the elegant Andrew Carnegie Free Library & Music Hall and Library Park, which connects the Library to Main Street. Join our docents as they lead you through this surprising and delightful community.

Tour meeting point: Historical Society of Carnegie, 1 West Main Street, Carnegie, PA 15106. Note: The Historical Society and the Honus Wagner Sports Museum will be open prior to the tour. Enjoy a visit there, free of charge, and meet your docents outside the building at 12:50!

Tour ending point: St. Peter and St. Paul Ukrainian Orthodox Church, 220 Mansfield Boulevard, Carnegie, PA 15106
