Dr. Bruce Dixon, former manager of the Allegheny County Health Department, stands in front of his house (formerly the Schwab mansion) in North Braddock, 2007. Restoring the 22-room, more-than-a-hundred-years-old house was somewhat of a hobby for Dixon.

This house was built in 1893 for Charles M. Schwab, at the time a superintendent of the nearby Edgar Thomson Works. Soon after, he became president of Carnegie Steel before becoming the first president and chairman of the Bethlehem Steel Corporation. He became massively wealthy from Bethlehem Steel's success as one of the two largest steel producers and is known for his Riverside estate, one of the largest mansions ever constructed in Manhattan.
