Historic Maps of Pittsburgh and Suburbs

The Pittsburgh Historic Maps site covers the whole city and an unpredictable selection of suburbs, mostly in the south and west. Multiple layers, which can be turned on and off easily, show maps and aerial photos from different times.

For dates and areas not covered on the Pittsburgh Historic Maps site, Historic Pittsburgh has an extensive but badly organized on-line collection of maps. We are attempting to organize them by area and then by date.
