Founded in 1837 as the town of Temperanceville, the city's West End is a neighborhood rich in history.
Temperanceville began with a Saw Mill founded in the mid 1700s on land granted to business man and settler David Elliott. The town's location near the Ohio River made it an ideal spot for developing industry, especially coal, timber and salt. Timber from the area was used in creating Fort Pitt, the precurser to Pittsburgh built in what is now Point State Park.
Temperanceville became part of Pittsburgh in 1873.
The West End's business district is home to over 160 diverse companies, shops and restaurants. Many of them are housed in interesting buildings, some a century old. The district's business community is represented by the West Pittsburgh Partnership and the West End Valley Business Association.
