Description: (from the Haunted Pittsburgh Tours Website) Journey with us back to the Gilded Age of ragtime and of robber barons, of boastful mansions bathed in gaslight, and of a “Millionaire’s Row” that was the most exclusive address in America. A writer named James Parton once called Pittsburgh “hell with the lid off.” We let our guests decide how accurate that is. But we can assert this without fear of contradiction: our city’s character was forged in vicious labor strife and in pig iron furnaces so hot that men and women sometimes forgot their fear of hell. Any town that’s experienced the turbulence ours has seen simply can’t escape its ghosts, and Pittsburgh is teeming with them.
Tours are 1.5 hours long. A full tour can be found on their website, where you can also purchase tickets.
