The City of Pittsburgh is proud to open the doors of the historic City-County Building to the public, allowing a unique behind the scenes look at the seat of Pittsburgh government – including the Mayor’s Office and City Council.

Built from 1915-17, the City-County Building was designed by renowned architects Henry Hornbostel & Edward Lee as the 3rd seat of government for the City Of Pittsburgh. A gift to itself for Pittsburgh’s Incorporation Centennial in 1916, the City-County Building was constructed from 1915-17.

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 honor the City-County Building’s 100th Anniversary.

Be sure to visit the City Council Chambers and the Mayor’s Office while you are here!

YOUR EXPERIENCE: After exploring the Lobby, you will have the unique opportunity to visit and explore the Hall of Mayors, Office of the Mayor, Council Chamber, Supreme Court Room, and the rarely opened Pittsburgh Vault, containing the the city's archives.
