Deutschtown's 2011 House Tour is Finally Coming...

It's BACK! Deutschtown's 2011 House tour is scheduled for Sunday, September 25 from 11am until 4pm. Our self-guided, 2011 historic house tour features eight distinctive restored homes, many built in the late 1800s, and some modern surprises. Expect an ecclectic collection of architectural and personal styles, plus enjoy five gardens, ethnic music and great food at several Deutschtown restaurants... and an optional end of the day wine tasting!

Our acclaimed and newly expanded Priory Hotel is a centerpiece for the tour, which launches in its charming courtyard on Lockhart Street.  Free parking is available in the large lot adjoining Pittsburgh’s Grand Hall.  The Steelers are out of town that day, so on street parking will also be readily available.

Tickets for the tour will be available at several Deutschtown business locations starting August 15, and are currently available for purchase on Deutschtown's website. There will be discounts for groups of four or more. Stay tuned for more information in the coming weeks.




National Night Out

The Northside/Deutschtown Community Merchants celebrated its National Night Out on August 2, 2011. National Night Out (NNO) is an opportunity for neighbors to come together to raise awareness of crime prevention in a fun, family friendly environment. NNO is designed to heighten crime and drug prevention awareness, encourage participation in neighborhood anticrime programs, strengthen police-community partnership, and send a message to criminals that neighborhoods are organized and fighting back.
