Fort Pitt Block House
October 2, 2014

Point State Park was designated as one of the top 10 outdoor spaces in the country and the Fort Pitt Block House shines in the center of the park. At 250 years it is a testament to the strengths of our city and of our country and hopefully will be there for future generations to explore and learn. History has made us who we are and must be preserved.

Fort Pitt Block House
September 28, 2012

When I joined the Pittsburgh Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution I was so excited to learn of their ownership of the Fort Pitt Block House. To hear the history of those brave, intelligent women who struggled to protect and preserve such a vital part of Pittsburgh history in a time when women had little or no voice in the world is truly awe inspiring. And what an important part of Pittsburgh and the nation's history they saved. Few realize that the tiny building is the oldest west of the Alleghenies. It was built in 1764, before the American Revolution, as a redoubt of Fort Pitt and was the gateway to the west in those times. It is of utmost importance to preserve this little jewel in the heart of beautiful Point State Park for years and years to come.
