PHLF Caregie Walking Tour

When:

10/13/2018 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM

Where:

220 Third Street, Carnegie, PA 15106

What:

​Carnegie is located approximately seven miles west of Pittsburgh and ten miles east of the Pittsburgh International Airport.  Now considered a suburb of Pittsburgh, the Allegheny County borough often makes news because of the special events at the recently restored Andrew Carnegie Free Library & Music Hall and the impressive selection of restaurants and shops along Main Street.  Explore the Main Street area with docents from PHLF and hear about the community's resurgence, as well as the early settlers, the notable residents, the mills, railroads, commerce, floods, and library - the only one of several thousand permitted to use Andrew's first and last name.

Fee: members $10; nonmembers $35 (includes one year complimentary membership in PHLF)

Paid reservations are due by Tuesday, October 9, 2018

Registration is limited to 30 people and advance paid reservations are required.  Docents will lead groups of about 10 to 15 people.

Meeting location: 220 Third Street (Third Street at Third Avenue, across from Third Street Gallery), Carnegie, PA 15106

Ending location: Andrew Carnegie Free Library & Music Hall, 300 Beechwood Avenue, Carnegie, PA 15106

Please note: Please arrive 10 minutes before the tour time.  The walk is relatively on flat land, until the last portion up Beechwood Avenue.  Please dress for the weather and wear comfortable shoes.  There are no restrooms breaks and refreshments are not provided.
