From Pittsburgh Streets

To do

Source:Stringtown, p. 63: "The population of Pitt Township had dropped to 3,924 in 1830, but this was probably the result of the formation of Wilkins Township out of part of its area during the preceding decade. At that time George G. Negley, fourth of the six sons of Jacob Negley and his second wife, Mary Alicia Johnson were living on the west side of North Hiland Avenue, two blocks north of Penn Avenue. Their home, a modified colonial, sat in a finely cultivated estate of seven acres. They called it Rural Home and when their entrance way became a public street, Mrs. Negley named it Rural Avenue."
