Mesothelioma Doctors, Lawyers and Asbestos Exposure in Allegheny, Pennsylvania

Allegheny City was a Pennsylvania municipality located on the north side of the Allegheny and Ohio Rivers, across from downtown Pittsburgh between 1788–1907. In 1828, the borough of Allegheny was incorporated and was home to nearly 1,000 residents. In 1880, Allegheny was incorporated as a city and the population was over 50,000. In 1907 the city was annexed by Pittsburgh. The area today is known as the North Side of Pittsburgh, and its waterfront district is referred to as the North Shore. Allegheny City included the present Pittsburgh neighborhoods of Allegheny Center, Allegheny West, Brighton Heights, California-Kirkbride, Central Northside, Chateau, East Allegheny, Fineview, Manchester, Marshall-Shadeland, North Shore, Northview Heights, Perry North, Perry South, Spring Garden, Spring Hill–City View, Summer Hill, and Troy Hill some of which are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Allegheny was an industrial city and had numerous commercial areas, churches, and social organizations, packing houses, tanneries, soap factories and glue factories. The H.J. Heinz Company constructed its factory in Allegheny City. Heyl & Patterson Inc., a manufacturer of railcar dumpers and ship unloaders, also built a factory in Allegheny City. Though this area was primarily farmland prior to the 1850s, by the late 19th century, the "Made in Allegheny" label could be traced to a variety of items including basic iron, rope, plows, cotton cloth, wool, food, paper, steam engines, wagons and carts, meat, candles, lumber, linseed oil, and furniture.
