Beautiful cemetery! The history you see and the love that went into the stones is amazing. It is also in a district that is getting revitalized and will be a great walking/shopping area.

My husband and I decided to take a weekend away from home and visit Pittsburgh for our anniversary. To kill time prior to hotel check in, we found this beautiful old cemetery and decided to visit. It was amazing! Walking around the massive place makes you feel like you've taken a step back in time. So many old military sites,... More

We enjoyed the mausoleums and the deer there. The deer are so friendly and they had baby deer with them. They were filming a movie when we were ther so we didn't get to see it all.

What a great time we had touring this cemetery. There are several military veterans buried here including vets from all of the major wars. We first stopped at the office to obtain a map. The lady at the desk was very helpful. The map is very much needed to find your way around. The grounds are well kept and maintained.... More

In the long line of historic cemeteries across the country I've visited I have to say this was just ok. There are some interesting monuments and notables buried here but overall I just wasn't wowed, however, I did enjoy the fortress looking gate house.

I really think this place is peaceful and pretty, it's nice to just go walk around and look at all the old graves. It really is a piece of history for the city! Be respectful of course!

All the big Pittsburgh names are buried here. The Victorian mausoleums are something to see. If you can get on a tour (usually given by Pittsburgh History and Landmarks Society, the tour will be much more special. Lovely in the Fall with all the trees in color.

Driving around a cemetery is not usually a pleasant experience for me but this is a very historical and peaceful cemetery. The entrance of the cemetery looks like a castle. The monuments, tombstones, headstones and sculptures are awesome. Huge trees, plants, ponds, fountains, hills and scenery are all great. We saw a flock of ducks. It is a good place... More

You may think it strange to visit a cemetery in your free time. While it is a bit creepy, Allegheny is a terrific place to spend a few minutes driving around. The grounds are beautiful and the monuments are pretty amazing. There are also several wild animals such as deer that roam the grounds and allow you to get somewhat... More
