Our Building’s History

Perserving Our Roots


Dating back to 1883, our historic building was originally home to the headquarters for A.M. Byers Wrought Iron Pipe Co. From its mills in the South Side and the surrounding region, Byers Pipe became a world-renowned wrought iron manufacturer and built their offices to suit.


We have updated and renovated our building to keep the special charm and character it has to offer. Located along the Great Allegheny Passage trail, the South Side Travelers Rest has hosted all types of visitors and travelers who have visited Pittsburgh for both business and pleasure.
