Our partnership with the Clemente Museum is a unique opportunity to tap into the rich history of Pittsburgh and one of its heroes, Roberto Clemente. Clemente was one of the greatest baseball players to have ever lived, known for his humility, humanitarian efforts, bravery in the face of discrimination, and outstanding baseball achievements: 3,000 career hits, 12-time Golden Glove winner, and World Series MVP among many others.
His legacy is carried on through the work of Duane Rieder, a Pittsburgh native who purchased Engine House 25 and turned it into a museum that keeps the story of Clemente alive. Rieder gives free tours to local middle schoolers and high schoolers, sharing with them the incredible story of Roberto Clemente.
Engine House 25 also houses Engine House 25 Wines, the proceeds of which support the Clemente Museum, as well as Rieder’s personal photography studio, where he continues to tell the story of Pittsburgh and its people.
