Notes:Glenbury Street

From Pittsburgh Streets

Source:Sidney-neff (1851) and Source:Beers (1862) show a road in the location of modern Glenbury Street. Beers shows "J. Glen" about halfway along this road—probably coincidental.

Source:Fairhaven-plan (1872): Fairhaven laid out for the Pittsburgh and Castle Shannon Railroad. This plan includes Frederick Street, incorporating a part of the old road.

Source:Hopkins-1876, p. 44, shows Fairhaven, but none of the streets are labeled.

Source:Hopkins-1886, plate 19, shows Frederick Street.

Source:Hopkins-1896, plates 3 and 4, shows Fair Haven Avenue and Frederick Street (and an unnamed road).

Source:Hopkins-1905, plate 10, shows Fairhaven Avenue, Frederick Street, and Township Road.

Source:Hopkins-1916-vol-6 (revised 1922 and 1928), plate 26, shows "Frederick (Fairhaven) Ave." in the north, with "Fairhaven Ave." splitting off to the south.

Overbrook Borough annexed January 6, 1930:

Source:Ordinance-1930-170 renamed Rohm Avenue, from "Saw Mill Run Blvd" to "Second Angle North of Thompson St" and from "First angle in Thompson St. North of John Way" to "Breining Ave.," to Glenbury Street.
