Many of our tales hark back to one especially turbulent era – the time when Pittsburgh was bursting onto the world stage as an industrial powerhouse--the time when the city was becoming the world's workshop. That era just happens to coincide with the time that Pittsburgh was officially spelled without the “h” at the end. In 1890, the United State Board of Geographic Names ordained that the “h” be dropped, and it wsan't until 21 years later that the protests of Pittsburghers were heeded and the “h” was reinstated. Is there a correlation between the supernatural activity and the loss of the "h"?
But if you like creepy stories about the unexplained in Western Pennsylvania that will raise the hair on the back of your neck and leave you feeling a tad uneasy before you shut out the lights to go to sleep (and that happen to be true) this is the tour for you. We have no desire to give your heart a jolt; we much prefer to give your spine a tingle. This is the real deal: we tell good old-fashioned ghost stories, creepy stories, stories that are "meticulously researched, brilliantly crafted, and beautifully told" (post-gazette.com). If you like a good ghost story with a Pittsburgh twist, Haunted Pittsburgh has what you're looking for.
