Welcome to Pittsburg!
Located in the piney and hardwood forests of Northeast Texas, Pittsburg is a great place to live, work, start a new business or take a weekend getaway vacation. If you love the outdoors, Pittsburg is close to two state parks and five large lakes with an abundance of water sports - boating, fishing and skiing. Or if you prefer historic buildings and homes, antique shopping and museums, Pittsburg has these things and more. Pittsburg takes you back to slower-paced, gentler times when everyone was friendly and helpful.
Pittsburg's charm is evident in its lovely shops and a prayer tower with Paccard bells from France that chime on the hour with soft melodies that waft through town. Shop the many stores featuring antiques, clothing, shoes, gifts, crafts and a 1950's style soda fountain, or try our famous Pittsburg hot links. Pittsburg has many excellent restaurants and bed and breakfasts. And don't miss our famous peaches, blueberries and strawberries in the spring.
Pittsburg is also home of two award-winning museums, one featuring railroads and the Ezekiel Airship and one farmstead museum, which takes you back to the days of your grandparents. Pittsburg is also home to Pilgrim's Pride Corporation, the largest chicken producer in the United States. We also have two vineyards/wineries, Los Pinos Ranch Vineyards and St. Rose Vineyard and Winery.
Stroll back in time in Historic Pittsburg, where turn-of-the-century buildings, lovely historic homes and churches with awe-inspiring stained glass windows make a visit here a time to remember.
