Why is Pittsburgh So Haunted?

The history of Pittsburgh is the story of industrialism in America. Heavy industry rules this corner of the country, but the Shawnee people inhabited the region before the city was established. As Europeans arrived in the area, the area at the confluence of the Alleghany, Monongahela, and Ohio Rivers became increasingly important as a trading hub. The origins of Pittsburgh are rooted in the French-Indian Wars, which involved the construction of Fort Pitts by the British in the 1760s.


After the wars and the American Revolution, the settlement, now known as Pittsburgh, began growing as European immigration grew. After the Civil War, the steel industry exploded in the city as steel magnate Andrew Carnegie expanded his empire.

Lizzie Borden Tour

The city grew into one of America’s largest cities. Today, Pittsburgh still has a reputation for heavy industry, but it’s also known for ghosts! The city is mired with the spirits of the steelworkers who built the city from the ground up. You might see their ghosts hanging around town.

The worst of the worst can be seen at the Allegany County Jail. Rumors have it that the spirit of an inmate who committed suicide haunts the building. Some also hang out at certain haunted spots in South Park or the North Shore. One of the spookiest houses in the city is the Congelier House, which was the site of a grisly double murder stemming from a jealous wife. The haunts in Steel City are endless, so book your Pittsburgh ghost tour with Lizzie Borden Ghost Tours today!
