This isn't worth a special trip, but if you're going to Fort Point anyway, spend a few minutes looking at this structure.

This happened to be open as we was there. Oldest building in Pittsburgh. It was astonishing to be inside.

What a great place to visit There is a museum but it was closed early in the morning when I went there. Love the history of the fort and the layout of the fort is highlighted in white. The blockhouse is supposed to be the oldest building in the city. Mindblowing. A great place for history buffs. Make time to visit.

We stopped to go to the museum and see what was left of Ft. Pitt-- the museum was closed (for all of January 2020) and the building was locked, so it ended up just being a chance to stretch our legs. There's a parking lot ($7) on the other side of the freeway and good signage for and up and down stairs circuitous route over to the park, museum, and building. I'm glad there's at least one old building left, it's hard to think of Pittsburgh as a frontier town, but at least you can see a remnant.
