Hawthorne Street

From Pittsburgh Streets
Hawthorne Street
Neighborhood Stanton Heights

A street labeled Hawthorne Street appears in the 1882 Hopkins atlas, running along the eastern edge of the property of Daniel McKee north of Stanton Avenue.[1] In the 1890 edition the landowner is given as John D. McKee, and the name Hawthorne Street is also explicitly applied to the segment of the street south of Stanton Avenue.[2]

In 1902 the Stanton Land Company laid out a plan of lots on the former McKee property, and they shifted Hawthorne Street slightly to the west so that it ran through the center of the plan. The old Hawthorne Street became Old Lane.[3][4]
