Located in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, you can find the quaint, cozy borough of Aspinwall with a population of approximately 3,000. This primarily residential community is a part of the larger Pittsburgh Metro Area, bordered by the northern section of Pittsburgh to the southeast, O’Hara Township to northwest, north, and east, Sharpsburg to the west, while the Allegheny River sits just to its south. Aspinwall is also in proximity to a few Pittsburgh neighborhoods, including Lincoln-Lemington-Belmar to the southeast and Highland Park to the south, as well as the southern portion of Lincoln-Lemington-Belmar, also to the south. Throughout the 1880s, the descendants of a man named James Ross owned much of the land that is now modern-day Aspinwall. In 1890, the superintendent of the Allegheny County Workhouse, Henry Warner, purchased 155 acres from Annie Aspinwall and formed the Aspinwall Land Company. Ross wanted to build a residential community along Allegheny River to accommodate the influx of people moving to the Pittsburgh area due to the thriving steel industry of that time. On December 28, 1892, the area of Aspinwall was officially incorporated, along with a portion of O’Hara Township. From the early 1890s through the early 1900s, Aspinwall was developed in three separate phases, with the last one being the annexation of Delafield Plan, which consisted of an additional 200 acres.
