Hill Street (until 1881)

This street was laid out as Hill Street in 1870 for E. P. Jones, Charles Jeremy, and John D. Scully.[1]

In 1881, a city ordinance officially established the names of all thoroughfares in Pittsburgh and fixed duplicates. There were seven Hill Streets in Pittsburgh at that time, so six of them were renamed; this one became Haran Street.[2]
