Lagniappe for Pittsburgh
WTR's Ernie Exhibit provides information on special current exhibitions for our featured museums such as: The Senator John Heinz History Center
Now to June 10, 2018 see American Spirits
The American Spirits exhibit at the History Center will examine Pittsburgh’s deep connections with the regulation of alcohol, which has been a catalyst for civic dissent since the Whiskey Rebellion in 1791-1794. During the Prohibition era, Pittsburgh – with its immigrant population heavily involved in the liquor business – earned a reputation as one of the “wettest” cities in America.
The exhibit will include several local artifacts that showcase Western Pennsylvania’s long history with alcohol, including items from the region’s new wave of spirits distributors like Wigle Whiskey, Maggie’s Farm Rum, and more.
