South Side Walking Tour

July 25, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Wednesday, July 25
6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

Stroll through the commercial and residential heart of Pittsburgh’s South Side, between 12th Street and 18th Street, and celebrate the 25th anniversary of the East Carson Street City Historic District designation. Participants will be given a soft pretzel to savor along the way. PHLF docents will share stories about the colorful, adaptable commercial and residential buildings bordering East Carson Street and several side streets. You’ll see religious structures, too, that are a testament to the diverse immigrant population that was attracted to the South Side when glass, iron, and steel factories operated on riverfront land. There will be much to see and enjoy on this stroll through one of Pittsburgh’s most popular neighborhoods.
