OUR COMMUNITY

 Located in the piney and hardwood forests of Northeast Texas, Pittsburg is a great place to live, work, open a business or just enjoy a weekend getaway!
 

Pittsburg is on U.S. Highway 271 and State Highway 11, 10 miles south of I-30 and 45 miles north of I-20, offering convenient driving routes to or from Longview, Tyler, Dallas-Fort Worth, Texarkana and Shreveport.
 

Pittsburg is known for its turn-of-the-century buildings and classic Main Street.  For over 30 years, Pittsburg has been recognized as a Historical Main Street City.  The natural beauty of this area offers visitors rolling hills, pine trees, and lovely lakes setting the backdrop for picknicking, bird watching or getting reacquainted with nature on a long walk.  Historic downtown is a mix of antique shops, boutiques, a bed-and-breakfast, and restaurants.
 

Also in our downtown area is a museum which offers train enthusiasts the opportunity to watch our 33 daily trains pass by while learning more about railway history.  Much of the railway station is preserved in its original state.


If you're looking for internal peace, visit Witness Park and enjoy the Prayer Tower which houses French Paccard bells and stained glass windows depicting the life of Jesus.
 

The pride of historical Pittsburg is the 1902 Ezekiel Airship, built by the Reverend Burrell Cannon working from the Biblical Book of Ezekiel.  The airship is housed in the Depot Annex of the Northeast Texas Rural Heritage Museum.  Be sure to visit our wineries, make reservations to stay at a local guest ranch, or enjoy water sports at the numerous lakes in the area.
 

Pittsburg also caters to those with a sweet tooth.  Each spring and summer the famous Pittsburg peaches ripen and are sold at the various orchards and roadside stands alongside other farm fresh fruits and vegetables.
