About PittsburgAdopting and adapting the name of the Pennsylvania metropolis, Pittsburg was founded in 1876 as a mining camp. Over the years some 200 million tons of coal were excavated here. Pittsburg State University, with an enrollment of more than 7,000, offers educational and cultural opportunities. Nearby, several reclaimed strip pits provide swimming, fishing and other recreation.
Little Balkans Days, a festival held downtown on Labor Day weekend, celebrates the community's coal-mining origins. Highlights include sports tournaments, train rides, concerts, crafts and a quilt show.
