Smithfield Street Bridge from Three Rivers Heritage Trail, Pittsburgh

Lost Historic Buildings of Pittsburgh (Demolished)

These are Pittsburgh’s lost buildings. They are the ghosts of Pittsburgh’s romantic, historic past. We can’t visit them now. We can only be haunted by the everlasting effects of “progress” that deemed these buildings disposable. The next time you walk down Smithfield Street, remember the Old Post Office and City Hall. All we have in their place is a parking garage and a small black building that looks like a shoebox.

“Urban Renewal” efforts of the 1950s and 1960s attempted to remold America’s old urban city centers into suburban-like office parks, and in the process destroyed countless irreplaceable historic buildings and neighborhoods forever.
