This museum is dedicated to the history of the city’s famous “Point” and the role it played in the French and Indian War. But state budget cutbacks may do what the French never could: At this writing, the state has recommended the museum be closed, so be sure to call before visiting. The adjoining Fort Pitt blockhouse is the city’s oldest remaining structure, having withstood two centuries of industrial expansion, blight and the occasional flood.
