The Historic Pittsburgh City Directories contains 125 directories published between 1815 and 1945. The majority of the directories were published by J.F. Diffenbacher and R.L. Polk & Company. While most of the directories cover Pittsburgh and Allegheny City, a portion includes Homestead and nearby boroughs. This collection also contains several general business directories.

Since city directories comprise listings of personal/business names and addresses, we thought researchers would appreciate being able to search or browse these titles separately from the Historic Pittsburgh General Text Collection.

Thank you Heinz History Center and the Pittsburgh History & Landmarks Foundation for contributing so many of your city directories to be digitized and added to Historic Pittsburgh.
