Elizabeth Seton High School - 1941

Elizabeth Seton High School - 1941

Elizabeth Seton High School as it appeared in 1943, shortly after the removal of the school's bell tower, which was donated to the war effort during a scrap metal drive. Located at 1900 Pioneer Avenue, this local parochial school was for girls only; boys went to South Hills Catholic High School.

Purchased in 1941 from the city of Pittsburgh, the building was renovated and dedicated as Elizabeth Seton High School. Originally, this was the site of West Liberty School, the first, and at one time the only, public elementary school in the South Hills section of Pittsburgh. The schoolhouse was constructed in 1898.
