Nestled in a valley along the Ohio River, the West End Village is on the cusp of a comeback. Just two miles from downtown, the community once considered a gateway to the city of Pittsburgh is striving to reclaim its place through the restoration of a vibrant main street that serves the 297 residents who live here. Originally the Borough of Temperanceville, the community officially became the West End when it was annexed to the city of Pittsburgh in 1872. A bit of rebranding a few years ago lead to its new “village” moniker.
