About Braddock

Braddock has access.

The 1 by ½ mile town is nestled along the edge of the Monongahela River 8 miles from downtown Pittsburgh. Braddock’s location is optimal for accessing the city of Pittsburgh and other points in the Mon Valley region. For starters, PA 376 (the major thoroughfare to downtown and to the airport) entrance is 3 miles away. Also within a 3 mile radius is Western PA’s most famous amusement park, Kennywood and Pittsburgh’s largest water park, Sand Castle. Three miles will also bring you to two different areas with shopping, restaurants, and entertainment.

Braddock has history.

Braddock is named after General Braddock, an officer in the French and Indian War. The town is book ended by two steel mills, one active, one inactive, creating a display of the past and present of the region’s industrial economy. Braddock is home to the first Carnegie Library, funded by Andrew Carnegie in 1888.
Braddock is a place to live, work, and create. The financial hardships that accompanied the downsizing of the Steel Industry result in the unique opportunity of affordable property rates and open land for redevelopment. New residents have restored old houses, organizations have created block long urban farms, and old commercial buildings have been fixed up to rent to independent light-commercial businesses.

Braddock is a place for industry.

Three large recycling facilities line the river along with the other large industrial manufacturing businesses that range from construction to fabrication.

Braddock is a place for entertainment.

Braddock is home to art gallery and performance spaces. From live music, to art installations, to poetry readings, Braddock has many events produced by local and nationally known artists and performers.
Braddock is a place for community. Braddock has a large summer program for Youth, community recreational areas and a community center. Braddock also is home to over 11 churches.

We encourage you to explore Braddock for yourself so you can experience the place that we’ve made our home and workplace.
