“travel back to the time of carriages”

After the turn of the 20th century, the development of the automobile profoundly changed American life. In the Car and Carriage Museum, visitors can travel back to the time of carriages, see some of the first horseless carriages to have an impact on Pittsburgh and learn about Pittsburgh's role in the developing automobile industry.. The original "carriage house" portion of the Car and Carriage Museum was used to store the collection of carriages and antique cars that Helen Clay Frick brought to Pittsburgh. The building was expanded in 1997 to accommodate the addition of automobiles from the collection of G. Whitney Snyder (1921-1999).  Henry Clay Frick’s 1914 Rolls Royce Silver Ghost touring car and Howard Heinz’s 1898 Panhard (reputed to be the first car in Pittsburgh) are both on view, along with more than 20 vintage automobiles that illustrate the story of Pittsburgh’s place in automotive history.An award-winning video, Pittsburgh and the Automobile, alternates throughout the day with a short film, The Stanley Steamer. Through archival film, original footage and interviews, visitors are taken on a humorous and fascinating ride through the early years of automotive history.
