About Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, is the state's second largest city with over 300,000 people in the city limits. Pittsburgh's unique downtown area is home to over 400 bridges. This remarkable city is also home to a strong regional culture supported by a history of cultural philanthropy. Historically, the city's economy depended on its bustling steel operations. Today, the economy is more focused on service, education and technology sectors.

The area of modern-day Pittsburgh was once inhabited by numerous Native American tribes. After the Europeans arrived in America, both the French and British sought to take control of the area due to its position on the Allegheny and Monongahela Rivers. This land dispute led to the French and Indian War. The British eventually took control of the area, rebuilding a fort the French had destroyed. The town of Pittsburgh soon flourished around the fort.

By the early 1800s, Pittsburgh had established itself as a major manufacturer for the growing United States. The city focused on producing metal goods and filled a crucial need during the War of 1812. During the American Civil War, Pittsburgh produced many important products for the Union, including ironclad ships.

In 1875, the city began to produce mass quantities of steel, cementing itself as a key supplier for the country. The city's population, meanwhile, was growing at a fast pace. Famous industrialists, including Andrew Carnegie and Andrew Mellon, began to amass their fortunes in the city. During both World Wars, Pittsburgh's factories continued to hum along and produce necessary weapons for the government.

After the end of World War II, Pittsburgh began to change. Many within the local government wished to cut down on the unsightly factory-caused smog in the city. City leaders passed new regulations to cut down on emissions. Competition from other countries in the steel business forced Pittsburgh to shift its economy. Today, Pittsburgh has a diverse economy supported by a strong community.
