We all know Point State Park is the place to be in Pittsburgh – we’re all certainly waiting for summer to feel its fountain’s fine mist dancing across our faces. However, while the park is a prime recreational spot in Pittsburgh, it has an important history that often goes forgotten.
That granite outline you see in the grass is not just decoration. It’s the outline of the former Fort Duquesne, an essential output during the French and Indian War due to its strategic riverside location.
It later became Fort Pitt when the British captured it, and was torn down completely in 1792.
