William "Bill" Nixon Memorial Library and Research Center

Welcome to the William "Bill" Nixon Memorial Library and Research Center, a new addition to our historical society.

We have received the great honor of acquiring, with agreement from the widow Susan Nixon, a massive railroad photography collection from locally known Pittsburgh railroad photographer and collector, William “Bill” Nixon. To learn more about Mr. Nixon’s life please refer to a wonderful piece written about Mr. Nixon by clicking https://www.utimes.pitt.edu/archives/?p=3191.  In his honor we have dedicated a room in our historical society to his wonderful collection.

Hours are by request only, Please email us to set up a time to go through the collection.
