Monongahela Incline Ornament
The Monongahela Incline (or “The Mon”) opened on May 28, 1870, and is the oldest operating cable-powered incline in the USA. The cars can carry up to 23 passengers at a time and offer a stunning view as it climbs along Mount Washington. Once at the top, observation decks provide a spectacular view of the city of Pittsburgh. Registered as a National Historic Landmark, the incline and the view are two of the city’s most popular tourist destinations. As one of the two inclines built in Pittsburgh during the late 19th century, renovations were made to strengthen the aging frame. By replacing the line’s steam engine with electrical equipment to adding a steel structure, the Monongahela is sure to last for generations of Pittsburghers to come.
This special ornament is sure to be a keepsake for generations to come. It is the perfect gift for any Pittsburgher to commemorate a visit to this spectacular landmark.
