History of Our Community
In the late 19th Century, the Boroughs of Mansfield and Chartiers were situated south and west of Pittsburgh and divided by a creek. They merged to become one unified city, and a new name was sought. The community petitioned philanthropist Andrew Carnegie for financial assistance, and he responded generously. Thus, the town of Carnegie was founded on March 1, 1894.

Throughout the decades that followed, Carnegie experienced rapid growth of industry, commerce, and population. Yet, anyone who has ever resided there will boast of its small-town charm. The steel mills supported generations of families, who then struggled to adapt to a changing world when the plants closed down.

However, from the rise and fall of the steel era to historic floods, including the 2004 flood, when Hurricane Ivanís heavy rains brought devastation, Carnegie comes back with strength, enthusiasm, and creativity.
