Pittsburgh's Incline History and How the Two Remaining Almost Didn't Remain

The Pittsburgh inclines were community assets in the sprawling industrial housing that developed along the steep river slopes of the 19th and early 20th centuries. More than 17 inclines were found in old city records, but some were never built. The remaining Monongahela and the Duquesne Heights inclines survived through a monumental effort on the part of the Mt. Washington - Duquesne Heights community to prevent demolishing these landmarks. Join us as we discuss the history and impact of inclines in Pittsburgh.
