Pittsburgh’s rich history is woven into the streets that cut through each city neighborhood, intersecting the lives and experiences of each generation within a common geography. From East Liberty to Lawrenceville, Aspinwall to Bloomfield, all people from the Steel City share at least two common ties:  an undying dedication to the Black & Gold and a recognition of our own mortality.  Like a giant hub, the Allegheny Cemetery has served as the final resting place for countless city dwellers since the land was first dedicated to memorials in 1845. Buried in this cemetery is Pittsburgh native, Stephen Collins Foster, author of seminal American classics “Oh Susanna,” “Camptown Races,” and “My Old Kentucky Home.” This musical element of the Allegheny Cemetery does not end with Foster, though. Over the years, Lawrenceville locals have utilized the grounds to host music festivals like the Rock All Night Tour (R.A.N.T.) and the annual celebration of Foster’s musical achievements called “Doo Dah Days.” Certainly, this cemetery is not just a site for burial and mourning; it is also an expansive natural environment that caters to the arts and supports local musicianship. Another interesting aspect of the Allegheny Cemetery is that it directly borders several city neighborhoods: Lawrenceville, Garfield, Bloomfield, and Stanton Heights. The vastness of this plot of land literally serves as a juncture between neighborhoods, family histories, and generations of Pittsburghers. 

 

With properties in East Liberty, Shadyside, and Bloomfield, Lobos Management offers several residential living options just blocks from this great unifying memorial site. Edmond Square in Bloomfield is located off of Liberty Avenue, a main throughway that runs parallel to the cemetery’s southernmost entrance point on Penn Avenue. Also available in Bloomfield is a spacious duplex on Winebiddle Street. And just off of the cemetery’s eastern edge is Lobos Management’s North Negley Apartments, a centrally located building that offers easy access to area shopping and dining. Taking a leisurely stroll through the historic Allegheny Cemetery is a great way to spend an afternoon, and with these Lobos Management properties so close, taking in the natural wonder of the cemetery could not be easier or more convenient.
