Preserving the past of our neighborhood.

Manchester Historic Society

 A heartfelt thank you to Rivers Casino Pittsburgh

for beautifying Manchester!...

On behalf of the entire Manchester community, we want to express our sincere gratitude to Rivers Casino Pittsburgh for your recent commitment to our neighborhood on May 28, 2024. Your generous contribution of both volunteers and funding for the recent cleanup day made a significant difference in the appearance and overall spirit of the Manchester neighborhood.


The dedication of the Rivers Gives volunteers was truly inspiring. Their hard work in cleaning and landscaping key areas has not gone unnoticed. It's clear that Rivers Casino Pittsburgh is not just a business in our community, but truly a valuable partner. Your investment in Manchester's beautification goes beyond just aesthetics. It fosters a sense of pride among residents and creates a more welcoming environment for everyone. This collaborative effort strengthens the bonds between our community and Rivers Casino Pittsburgh.


Thank you once again for your commitment to making Manchester a brighter place. We look forward to continued collaboration in the future.

We Preserve and Promote the History of Manchester

Manchester Historic Society was founded in 1996 to help preserve and promote the history of Manchester.

Manchester is located just minutes from downtown Pittsburgh and offers the advantages of community living in the midst of the larger urban experience.  We’re minutes from the North Shore, major sports and cultural attractions, the casino and the Federal Street renewal.  We’re easily accessible from all parts of the region.  Located along the east bank of the Ohio River, Manchester is roughly bounded to the north by the Conrail Railroad, to the west by Chateau Street, to the east by Allegheny Avenue and to the south by Western Avenue.

Community advantages


Welcome to the Manchester Historic Society

Manchester is one of Pittsburgh's 90 distinct neighborhoods located on the western side of the lower Northside.



The Manchester neighborhood has 3,000 residents that call it home.  We have residents that have lived here all their lives and ones that have recently moved in for the charm of the neighborhood and the convenience of living close to the city.



Manchester is an amazing fusion of old and new... homes that have been handed down through generations, preservations that can take you back in time to the turn of the century, and new and modern interpretations of classic styles.



You will find a neighborhood with wide, flat streets and sidewalks and easy access to all of the city's major attractions like theaters, stadiums, and restuarants.



We are Pittsburgh's largest historic district. It encompasses 51.6 acres and over 600 buildings.
