Notes:Hazelwood Avenue

From Pittsburgh Streets

Source:Pna-hazelwood: "Hazelwood's name derives from the hazelnut trees which once covered its site along the Monongahela River. In 1784 John Wood, a prosperous lawyer whose father, George, was an early surveyor of Pittsburgh's environs, built an estate called 'Hazel Hill' there. Over time, 'wood' was substituted for 'Hill'."
