Pittsburgh Picture of the Day

This is Clayton, Henry Clay Frick's Victorian mansion. It's so beautiful and it's only about 7.5 miles from our house in Mount Washington.

About 90% of the possessions & decor are original to the house fully restored through the donation of Frick's daughter, Helen in 1986. A good friend from Michigan is visiting and he loves history as much as we do so he just loved this place. We strolled the grounds after the tour, enjoyed some cool drinks on the patio at the cafe, and then visited the Frick Art Museum also on the grounds (which is Helen's private art collection). It's an amazing place. Read more about Clayton & the Fricks here.
