Updated and expanded due to popular demand, Whirlwind Walk is the first fully-illustrated comprehensive walking tour guidebook to many of the principal buildings and public spaces in downtown Pittsburgh.
The tour begins at H. H. Richardson’s Allegheny County Courthouse and Jail and ends at Point State Park —the confluence of the Allegheny, Monongahela, and Ohio rivers and the 18th-century Gateway to the West.
First published in conjunction with Pittsburgh’s 250th Anniversary, Whirlwind Walk originated in tours prepared for the National Trust for Historic Preservation in 2006 and for the Society of Architectural Historians in 2007. It is one in a series of self-guided tour booklets that began with the Allegheny County Courthouse and Jail Walking Tour (2007).
• 46 guidebook entries describing a total of 84 places
• Easy to follow fold-out walking tour map
• PLUS sections on “Downtown Museums and More” and “What’s Green Downtown?”
