  Mom and me at the Frick Greenhouse

Clayton was once the home of Henry Clay Frick, a millionaire who found success through the producing of coal and steel making enterprises in the Pittsburgh area. His Victorian home is open for tours during the year, but it's the Christmas season when Clayton shows its true beauty!

We've toured Clayton several times during the holidays, the day after Christmas is our favorite day to visit. The Victorian style decor and elegant furnishings lend themselves to a festive Christmas look. A guided tour gives detailed information on the family's life and the era in which they lived. Free docent tours take place on Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays at 2:00 p.m.

Clayton has an art gallery and museum shop on the premises. The hours of operation are Tues.-Sat. 10 am-5 pm; Sun. 12 pm-6 pm. except during the holidays when there are Wednesday evening tours. Admission is $10 for adults;$8 for seniors and students.
