Historic Pittsburgh Fair

Saturday, November 4, 2017 - 10:00am to 2:00pm
Event Description: 

Historic Pittsburgh comprises a variety of primary and secondary sources about the greater Pittsburgh region, including a wide range of publications, maps, manuscripts, visual images, and audio-video materials, that support personal and scholarly research. Launched in 1999, the site has grown each year through partnerships with more than a dozen cultural heritage institutions that hold historical collections and are willing to digitize and share them in support of both personal and scholarly research. Historic Pittsburgh is open to all and free to use. 

The Historic Pittsburgh Fair brings together creators and users of the collection to celebrate the history of our city. Join us at CLP-Main in Oakland for Pittsburgh activities for all ages
