Musgrave Street

From Pittsburgh Streets
Musgrave Street
Neighborhood Greenfield
McKee Street (until 1901)
Origin of name Maybe W. McKee
Marshall Street (1901–1910)

This street was originally named McKee Street.[1] There is perhaps a connection to W. McKee, whose house is shown nearby on an 1862 map.[2]

In the early 20th century the street was renamed several times. In 1901 a city ordinance changed McKee Street to Marshall Street.[3] Then in 1910 another ordinance changed Marshall Street to Musgrave Street.[4] In 1911 an ordinance claimed to rename McKee Street to Milwood Street,[5] but presumably, since McKee Street hadn't existed for ten years, this particular renaming had no effect.
