Father Pitt

Why should the beautiful die?

Klee Row, Allegheny West

Klee row

A row of identical houses put up in 1884 for Joseph Klee, a successful manufacturer of shoes and one of the founders of the Rodef Shalom congregation. The word “Klee” means “clover” in German, so, of course…


…all the dormers have clover ornaments.(1)


Note the basement-level breezeway between houses, which is very unusual in Pittsburgh.
