Manchester Historic Society

 
 

Manchester is one of the most architecturally rich and diverse neighborhoods in the city of Pittsburgh.  Manchester encompasses the largest historic district in the city and boasts some of the finest examples of nineteenth and early twentieth century architecture in Southwestern Pennsylvania.


Manchester is located just minutes from downtown Pittsburgh and offers the advantages of community living in the midst of the larger urban experience.  We’re literally minutes from the North Shore, major sports and cultural attractions, the casino and the Federal Street renewal.  We’re easily accessible from all parts of the region.  We’ve got flat lawns, wide streets, lots of parking and plenty of opportunities.  Located along the east bank of the Ohio River, Manchester is roughly bounded to the north by the Conrail Railroad, to the west by Chateau Street, to the east by Allegheny Avenue and to the south by Western Avenue.


We invite you to use this website as a resource to explore our neighborhood. 


Go to the ‘Available Properties’ page to learn about a new loan product from Wesbanco that is designed specifically for home owners interested in buying and rehabbing one of our vacant neighborhood properties.
