Clayton: The Frick House

"Clayton" is the name of the Italianate-style home located at the corner of Penn and South Homewood avenues in Pittsburgh’s residential East End neighborhood that is literally the last remnant of Pittsburgh's fabled millionaire's row. It was the home of Pittsburgh coke and steel magnate Henry Clay Frick and his family. Mr. Frick ran the world's largest steel company and was at the center of some of Pittsburgh's -- and the nation's -- greatest tragedies, including the Homestead Steel Strike and the Johnstown Flood.

The Frick family lived in Clayton from 1883 to 1905, and retained the house even after they moved to New York. In 1981, Mr. Frick's daughter Helen returned to live there in her old age. Before her death in 1984, she arranged for the home to become a living museum. It is now open the public and is among Pittsburgh's greatest treasures.

Clayton was witness to far more than it's share of sorrow, and there have been multiple reports of spiritual sightings there. Join us and hear about them.
