Nollhill Street

From Pittsburgh Streets
Nollhill Street
Neighborhood Lincoln Place
Origin of name J. Noll

Nollhill Street was originally named McBride Street. When Lincoln Place was annexed into the City of Pittsburgh in 1929, there were two McBride Streets, so the southern one was renamed Nollhill Street by a city ordinance the following year. (The northern one was renamed McBride Avenue.)[1] The name Nollhill likely refers to J. Noll, who owned two acres of land between the end of this street and Mifflin Road.[2]
