In 1890, the United States Board on Geographic Names standardized the names of all US cities and towns. One of the new standards forced the final "h" to be dropped from "burgh." In 1911, after protests from citizens wishing to preserve the historic spelling, the US Board reversed its earlier decision, restoring the "h" in Pittsburgh - now a part of our heritage.
Because of this interesting (and somewhat obscure) piece of history, we have adopted "Keeping the H in Pittsburgh" as our official slogan. Just as the "h" was kept in Pittsburgh, our hope is that we can help to preserve and keep our heritage in the Pittsburgh region.
