Exposition Park, Pittsburgh's North Side

In the early 1900s, Barney Dreyfus, owner of the Pittsburgh Pirates, aimed to replace the team’s outdated home, Exposition Park. He envisioned a modern, durable stadium to accommodate a growing fan base. With the help of industrialist Andrew Carnegie, Dreyfus secured seven acres of land in Oakland, next to Schenley Park. Construction of Forbes Field, named after General John Forbes, began on March 1, 1909.
