The City of Pittsburgh is proud to open the doors of the historic City-County Building to allow the public a unique behind the scenes look at the seat of Pittsburgh government. Built from 1915-17, the City-County Building was designed by renowned architect Henry Hornbostel as the 3rd seat of government for the City Of Pittsburgh. A gift to itself for Pittsburgh’s Incorporation Centennial in 1916, this magnificent space was considered to be temporary! Now, 100 years later we happily open the doors to what we foresee as our permanent home, to the public in celebration of our Bicentennial.

Visitors will enjoy the spectacular Grand Lobby features 47 foot tall gilded columns supporting a vaulted ceiling of Guastavino terracotta tile.
