So you think you know Pittsburgh?
This tour traverses a trail downtown Pittsburgh that we call the "Miracle Mile"--because an astounding number of events occurred there that changed the world. Tour guides take you to sites associated with: The infamous Homestead strike, and the worst day in American labor history. How Major James Grant sent hundreds of soldiers to their deaths in one of the stupidest attacks in military history. How George Westinghouse gave his revolutionary air brake a hair-raising, unplanned tryout--to save a man's life. The time when Pittsburghers prevented a full-blown civil war at the high water mark of the Whiskey Rebellion--by throwing a picnic and getting the rebels drunk. And much more. This is Pittsburgh history on steroids!

Space is limited--if you'd like to come on the tour, just send us an email or a text saying how many you want to bring. Your spot will be reserved as soon as we send you a confirming email or text alerting you that we have space for you. This event is FREE to the public.
