Ten Terrifying Tales of Pittsburgh Haunting (With Pictures)

Although the “smoky city” of Pittsburgh is best known for its prestigious hospital systems, devout sports teams, and handful of higher learning institutes, Pittsburgh is not without its fair share of macabre stories. Besides bearing strong ties to the makeup wizardry of Tom Savini and George Romero’s Night of the Living Dead, Pittsburgh also boasts its fair share of haunting. What follows are ten terrifying tales of Pittsburgh haunting!

10. Byers-Lyons Mansion

Constructed in 1898 by Alexander Byers, the site of the former Byers-Lyons mansion is located on the same avenue as the Congelier mansion. The location is now Byers Hall, which serves as a student union building and administrative office for the Community College of Allegheny County.

While Byers resided in one wing of the mansion, Byer’s daughter Maude and her husband, John Lyon, resided in the other wing. In 1902, the Lyons’ nanny dozed off while watching the Lyons’ daughter. The Lyons’ daughter managed to crawl atop a skylight and plummeted to her death when the window broke. The following day, overcome by guilt, the Lyons’ nanny wrote “please don’t blame me” in dust and then hung herself.

Many have sighted the Lyons’ daughter. Some have even heard the nanny’s sobbing or the loud thud of the girl’s body hitting the ground. Others have seen an apparition of the nanny roaming the building’s staircase. In 1990, the Community College of Allegheny County removed the building’s skylight but paranormal encounters continued.
