Here’s The Story Behind The Mister Rogers Statue In Pittsburgh

Pittsburghers have made Mister Rogers our own (and rightly so since Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood was filmed at WQED’s studios in Pittsburgh). The Mister Rogers statue in Pittsburgh, in fact, is a must-visit for anyone who grew up visiting the Land of Make Believe.
