Welcome to the Pittsburg Historical Museum.
Located in the former Pittsburg Post Dispatch building in Old Town Pittsburg, in the heart of the redeveloped downtown area sits a gem: The Pittsburg Historical Museum. The founders of the Pittsburg Historical Society likely didn’t envision the grand museum it is today. This assemblage of people held a committed purpose, to preserve the history of Pittsburg, and wanted upcoming generations to know about its background in fishing, mining, ranching, canning, military, and the large industries that came for its location on the river, and railroads.
With no space of their own, they began exhibiting on a temporary basis in various places including the Junta house on Black Diamond Street. The group was finally recognized by the Pittsburg Chamber of Commerce in 1961, but still needed to locate a permanent space. They were able to obtain a former Chevron clubhouse that was moved to the edge of City Park near Railroad Avenue. Over the years their collection grew beyond the space capacity to hold it. In the 1990s they secured the closed Southern Pacific Railroad Depot. But on the eve before taking ownership, the building was completely destroyed by fire. The group began looking for other property. Then President Pat Firpo and then Curator Marti Aiello had their eye on the vacant Pittsburg Post Dispatch building. They worked with the Lesher family and purchased the building in 1997. Due to the age of the building (1926) originally constructed for Coast County Gas & Electric, the building remained unopened until it was retrofitted for earthquake stability through grants from the City of Pittsburgh, local businesses, and others contributors. The grand opening was held in 2003.
