Doors Open Pittsburgh: Pittsburgh and the White Plague (virtual tour)

July 25, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Pittsburgh and the White Plague – Saturday, July 25th – 10am-10:40am

Join DOORS OPEN Pittsburgh for the inside story behind the White Plague that ravaged Pittsburgh at the turn of the century.

Like the Coronavirus pandemic today, the disease we now call tuberculosis changed everyday life forever.

We’ll show you what social distancing and unproven treatments looked like for back in 1915 for Pittsburghers in 1915, and the social changes from 1915 we’re still living with today, long after the White Plague was cured.

Presented by Pam Gianni, DOORS OPEN Pittsburgh Tour Curator

Suggested donation: $5
