Although not an official historic district, the city neighborhood of Fineview has a rich history.
Originally part of Allegheny City, Fineview was once known as Nunnery Hill due to the presence of a convent in neighborhood’s southern section. It was once home to one of the few curved inclines in the world and to the locally famous streetcar line (#21) that ran from 1951 to 1966. Two Civil War era architectural gems still remain in Fineview --- Heathside Cottage and the Henderson-Metz House --- are a must-see for Pittsburgh history lovers.
Fineview is a wonderful community that offers quaint, tucked away places, yards, and green space not expected in a neighborhood so close to Downtown.
Many of the programs are organizated by the Fineview Citizens Citizens Council neighborhood organization.
Varies per event or program.
Some on-street parking is available.
