Ammon Recreation Center

Brief History

Built in 1940, this was one of the few recreation centers that the City of Pittsburgh built for blacks in the Hill District. Also used by whites, it is one of the oldest existing recreation centers for blacks in Pittsburgh and had one of the first public outdoor pools for blacks.
