Pittsburgh City-County Building

414 Grant Street, Pittsburgh | 10 am to 4 pm


Visitors can explore multiple spaces once inside. Learn about this building, starting by appreciating the architecture of the lobby. Continue up to the 5th floor to view the Beaux Arts-style Council Chamber. Take note of the ornate plastered ceilings that list the municipalities that created the present-day Pittsburgh.

From there, explore Hall of Mayor’s, the actual Office of the Mayor and the rarely-opened Pittsburgh Vault, containing the city’s archives.   


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’s government including the Office of the Mayor and City Council.

Built from 1915-17, the City-County Building was designed by renowned architects Henry Hornbostel & Edward Lee as the third 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.
