Deutschtown is a beautiful urban neighborhood within walking distance to downtown Pittsburgh. Most of the buildings in the neighborhood date to the mid-19th century, when the area was populated by many German immigrants. In the 1960s, the neighborhood was divided by a highway into two sections, "East" Deutschtown, east of the highway, and "West" Deutschtown, pictured here. West Deutschtown has been painstakingly restored and saved by the efforts of generations of dedicated preservationists. East Deutschtown is a different story, and is documented in a separate photo tour.
