|Centre Street (1865–1881)|
|Origin of name||Its location in the center of a plan of lots|
This street was established as Centre Street in 1865 in a plan of lots laid out for Samuel W. Vandergrift, because it passed through the center of the plan.
In 1881 an ordinance established the names of all streets in the city of Pittsburgh, renaming many of them to fix duplicates. The name Centre Street conflicted with Centre Avenue, so it was changed to Carroll Street.
