Site of the Battle of Homestead

Frick Art & Historical Center

In 1970, Helen Clay Frick had the Frick Art Museum constructed to allow public enjoyment of her art collection. Miss Frick returned to Pittsburgh in 1981 and lived at Clayton until her death in 1984.

Although Miss Frick had carefully maintained Clayton, complete restoration of the home prior to opening as a house museum was a four-year project. Open to the public in 1990, Clayton now welcomes over 100,000 visitors a year and provides them with an intimate glimpse into the life of the Frick family a century ago.
