"A Small University Town On The Plains" Pittsburg by RoscoeGregg

Pittsburg Travel Guide: 11 reviews and 44 photos

Historic and Vital Downtown

This town has not given up on it's core. Most of the old store fronts are filled with local businesses.

There isa a nice mix from pharmacies and a sears to cafes. There has been a large effort to keep the buildings up and useful. It is a great way to see what a pre war pre farm crash town in the U.S. would have looked like.

A Good University

The Saving Grace for Pittsburgh is the University. It is the economic anchor that the town needs to keep going. There is a little of the collage town feel. But unlike many towns it is not overwhelming.

It began as a technical school and still has some of that feel. They are a little sports crazy.

Pros and Cons

    The companion's son and DIL live here after going to school, leaving and returning to live a slower life. Nice reviews by you. I just returned from New Mexico and loved the trip and hikes.

    I never knew there was a town called Pittsburgh in Kansas. Good that they have preserved some American Bison. I remember seeing some in New Mexico many years ago.
