This year’s Observatory Hill House Tour took place on June 2 and explored the home and garden spaces of the neighborhood’s Acorn Hill section.

Guests of this year’s Observatory Hill House Tour, called “Observatory Hill in a Nutshell,” registered at Riverview United Presbyterian Church, where they picked up their maps and tour books. There was a total of 11 stops on the tour and guests were encouraged to go their own way and explore the featured points of interest in any order they’d like. Beverage samples for the day were provided by Allegheny City Brewing, 412 Brewery, Wigle Whiskey, Platform Beer Co., Spring Hill Brewing, Lincoln Avenue Brewery, War Streets Brewery, and Threadbare Cider House & Meadery.
