The English-Oliver House was born in 1871, when Andrew H. English, a Pittsburgh bookseller built the original house. However it only came into its own after it was purchased by Henry W. Oliver and expanded to designs designs by the firm, Shepley, Rutan and Coolidge. This home, in a very sober Romanesque style, qualifies as one of the most impressive homes built by the Pittsburgh industrialists of the period..
