Old Lane

From Pittsburgh Streets
Old Lane
Neighborhood Stanton Heights
Origin of name Old course of Hawthorne Street
Hawthorne Street (until 1902)

This street is the original course of Hawthorne Street, which ran along the eastern edge of the McKee property in the 1880s and 1890s.[1][2] In 1902 the Stanton Land Company laid out a plan of lots on the former McKee property, and they shifted Hawthorne Street slightly to the west so that it ran through the center of the plan. The old Hawthorne Street became Old Lane.[3][4]
