Poles, Hungarians, Italians, Czechs, Ukrainians, Croats—these are just some of the ethnic groups that emigrated to America between 1870 and 1910. These are the people who put our Steel City on the map. They came for work, and they worked hard, but life in America was harder than they imagined.
DOORS OPEN Pittsburgh takes you to four of these neighborhoods—inside the churches, social clubs, and ethnic businesses that helped these immigrants survive in a strange land.
Tour has been co-curated by Dr. Pam Gianni, DOORS OPEN Pittsburgh’s Tour Curator, and Bonnie Baxter, DOORS OPEN Pittsburgh’s Executive Director.
