Founded as the Pennsylvania Female College on December 11, 1869, by Reverend William Trimble Beatty (the father of renowned operatic contralto Louise Homer), Chatham was initially situated in the Berry mansion on Woodland Road off Fifth Avenue in the neighborhood of Shadyside. It was renamed Pennsylvania College for Women in 1890, and as Chatham College in 1955.
The campus today is composed of buildings and grounds from a number of former private mansions, including those of Andrew Mellon, Edward Stanton Fickes, George M. The name served to honor William Pitt, 1st Earl of Chatham and namesake of the City of Pittsburgh.
The Roberto Clemente Bridge (formerly Sixth Street Bridge) and the Andy Warhol Bridge (formerly Seventh Street Bridge) complete the trio of bridges.
They are the only trio of nearly identical bridges and were the first self-anchored suspension spans built in the United States.
