Meadowcroft Rockshelter, the oldest site of human habitation in North America, provides a unique glimpse into the lives of prehistoric hunters and gathers. This National Historic Landmark features a massive, 16,000-year-old rock overhang used by our earliest ancestors for shelter and the new enclosure provides visitors with a unique, never-before-seen perspective into the oldest and deepest parts of this internationally-renowned archeological excavation.
In addition to ancient history at the Rockshelter, visitors can step back in time to experience rural life over 150 years ago. Meadowcroft Village recreates all of the charming qualities of an Upper Ohio Valley village from mid-19th century.

Pittsburgh - a dynamic place - is located at the confluence of the Allegheny, the Monongahela and the Ohio. There is a certain flavor about Pittsburgh that tells visitors that it is alive and exciting!

This Tour follows the experiences and the stories of the immigrant workers and their families that poured into this region, from the heights of Mount Washington to the heart of the Monongahela Valley. The Tour will start at the top of Mt. Washington(have your camera ready for this stop!), continue to the Cookie Table, one of Pittsburgh’s famous ethnic traditions, and finish at the site of the 1892 Battle of Homestead, where a young struggling union stood its ground against the titans of industry, Andrew Carnegie and Henry Clay Frick. Following the Tour we will visit the Strip District, the center of wholesale produce marketing in Pittsburgh, and you will have a chance to wander through the outdoor produce markets, bookstores, ethnic foods specialty shops, fish markets and restaurants. It is here that the uniqueness of Pittsburgh history becomes evident. You will have time to shop and have lunch on your own. We will provide guide books for the area so we can make your stay a productive one.

The bus will then pick everyone back up and return to the hotel.
