Whipple Street Houses: 7304, 7308, 7309, 7312, 7313, 7316, 7317, 7320, 7321, 7324, 7325 and 7328

Hey! Today we're headed to Swissvale, and the years 1904 and 1905 to see 12 houses that popped up right before the Old Heidelberg


These homes looked, to me, like such quintessential "Pittsburgh Houses" that I would never have guessed that they are Frederick G. Scheibler's. They sit along the same block on Whipple Street, which used to be called Alice Avenue, and were commissioned by David B. Little and George H. Pfeil.

From the outside, I'm hard-pressed to point out any Scheibler signature details. However, provides some interior photos with the stained glass windows and built-in cabinets I expected!

  1. Hi, I am leading a team of surveyors this summer that are surveying every building in Pittsburgh for the city. We do a bit of surveying for historic character, so I try to keep them informed about cool architectural things they may encounter in each neighborhood. Your blog has some great info! We are going to be working in Homewood this week, and I was putting together some info on Homewood architecture and Scheibler. Do you know much about the Kismet and Syria apartments he designed on Bennett? I believe there was a third apartment called Nelda that burned, and I was curious if you knew if the other two are still standing. I've enjoyed reading your blog and will share some of the info on Scheibler with my surveyors!
