Hidden in plain sight on Baum Boulevard in Pittsburgh’s East End is the riveting history of the City’s role in the automotive and petroleum industries. From East Liberty to North Oakland, the boulevard—part of the historic Lincoln Highway—is home to buildings that served and housed many elements of these two industries as they evolved symbiotically to create America’s automobile culture.
The tour will both trace the architectural manifestations of this story and explore the ways in which old buildings have been repurposed for the most contemporary of uses, from the arts to advanced medical research and innovation.
