They were humble beginnings in 1754, when 30 or 40 Europeans first labored on a half-constructed Fort Prince George. But the tiny, disputed outpost in present-day Pittsburgh would grow to become one of the most recognized, livable, and green cities in the United States.
Artifacts from nearby Washington County reveal evidence that the Pittsburgh area may have been continually inhabited for over 19,000 years, since Paleo-Indian times. This means that the Pittsburgh region is home to the earliest known evidence of human presence and the longest sequence of continuous human occupation in the New World.
The forts are long gone. Eds and Meds power Pittsburgh. There are over 30 non-profit colleges and universities and more than a dozen hospitals in the area. Start-up incubators and co-working facilities have popped up to create a a web that criss-crosses between and around the branches of the three mighty rivers. The Allegheny, Monogahela, and Ohio still form the same distinctive fork within which Queen Aliquippa settled Shannopin’s Town hundreds of years prior, but today those shores are packed with movie studios, research labs, robotics centers, corporate headquarters, and hundreds of thriving businesses and creative spaces.
And they all could use a good website.
Your Website is a utility
Much as a business requires heat, plumbing, and electricity, today’s marketplace requires a digital calling card – a single page website at a minimum and sometimes something much more robust and layered. And as those utilities need regular service, occasional upgrades, and trusted, dependable personnel on call to do the job, so too, do websites.

The Fort Pitt Web Shop enters the market to meet that need. This is a web shop founded to address the daily, the grimy, the mundane nature of a business website – the updates, the bug fixes, the component development, the migrations, the tracking and testing, the incremental updates over the long haul…
Why? Because we care. And it needs (to be) done. If you need someone to maintain your website, call the Fort Pitt Web Shop. This isn’t a pitch for a fancy new layout, a huge new design, or months of self-aggrandizing development. It’s an offer for a partnership – you have a digital presence for your business. The Fort Pitt Web Shop has the tools to service and provide upkeep for it.
What’s this all about
Fort Pitt Web Shop was founded with two intentions:
- Bring excellence in service and maintenance to Pittsburgh-area businesses.
- Assist businesses so that they can make important decisions about their online presence from a position of authority and ownership.
If you need someone to maintain your website, call the Fort Pitt Web Shop.”
The web isn’t rocket science. OK, the actual web kind of is; building a website isn’t. If your business is selling flowers, making robots, grooming animals, or painting windows, do you really want to take the time to figure out the whole website thing? Maybe. But if you call a plumber when the drains clog or call a carpenter when it’s time for an expansion, then give the Fort Pitt Web Shop a call when it’s time to maintain and service your website.
The Fort Pitt Web Shop opened its doors this January, 2014. For service, call 844-PGH-SHOP. Or send an email to Chris.
