The Mansion, 2010


The house was built in 1903 by Thiebold Berger, a prominent business man in the printing press industry. He built the home as a wedding gift for his daughter and new son-in-law. Originally, the house was red brick, but the daughter did not like it, so Berger had sandstone put around the exterior of the home. It was one of four mansions on Maple Heights Road, which used to be recognized a part of 5th Avenue in Shadyside, a prominent, affluent neighborhood in Pittsburgh.
