Department of City Planning
War Monuments and Memorials Inventory

In Summer 2011, with the valuable input of the citizens of Pittsburgh and the City Department of Public Works, City Planning launched a project to create a complete inventory for war monuments and memorials within the City of Pittsburgh. At this time, City Planning has established an initial inventory of over 120 monuments and memorials within the City. This initial inventory can be downloaded by clicking the link below.

The City is presenting this initial inventory and asking that citizens respond if they have any corrections, information, or if they know of any additional war monuments such as an honor roll, artwork, memorial, or monument pertaining to any war or individuals connected to an American conflict. Interested persons may visit the website or contact Morton Brown, Public Art Manager, at 412-255-8996 or morton.brown@pittsburghpa.gov.

It is intended that once location, better photographs, and condition information is garnered and validated, this inventory will be compiled into a lasting online database and further utilized to care for and maintain the City's collection of these pieces.

Enjoy, and please let us know if you have any additional information or comments on these pieces. It is very important to us that we get this right and all information is accurate and up to date. Please contact us if you have anything to add or correct.

This Citywide project has been created and will be completed in collaboration with the Soldiers and Sailors Memorial Hall & Museum, the Senator John Heinz History Center, the Northside Leadership Conference and the help of the Veterans and community organizations throughout the City.

For more information, please contact Morton Brown, Public Art Manager, at 412-255-8996 or morton.brown@pittsburghpa.gov.
