Pittsburg

Pittsburg is known for its turn-of-the-century buildings and classic Main Street.  For more than 20 years, Pittsburg has been recognized as a Historical Main Street City.  The natural beauty of this area offers visitors rolling hills, pine trees, and lovely lakes setting the backdrop for picnics, bird watching or getting reacquainted with nature on a long walk.  Historic downtown is a mix of antique shops, fashion, a 50's style soda fountain, beautiful bed-and-breakfasts, and good restaurants. Also in the downtown area is the Pittsburg Railroad museum which offers train enthusiasts the opportunity to watch 33 daily trains pass by while learning more about railway history.  Much of the railway station is preserved in its original state. Those looking for internal peace might visit Witness Park and enjoy the Prayer Tower which houses French Paccard bells and stained glass windows depicting the life of Jesus. The pride of historical Pittsburg is the 1902 Ezekiel Airship, built by the Reverend Burrell Cannon working from the Biblical Book of Ezekiel.  The airship is housed in the Depot Annex of the Northeast Texas Rural Heritage Museum.  Be sure to visit the two nearby wineries, make reservations to stay at a local guest ranch, or enjoy water sports at the numerous lakes in the area. www.pittsburgtexas.com/
