History of Allegheny County Pennsylvania

Before European contact, the shires of the Allegheny River and its surroundings were the territories of various Iroquois-speaking peoples like the Lenape, the Seneca and the Shawnee, as well as a Few Mingo peoples. The French claimed the region in 1749. The British began to compete for the land soon after, and both the European powers and their local allied tribes fought bitterly for territory in what became known as the French and Indian War, with the British colonies generally winning.

Allegheny County was created in 1788, and Pittsburgh became the County seat in 1791. It was industrialized in the 1800s, and became the nation’s largest center for steel production in the late 19th century.

Allegheny County Namesake

The origin for this name is actually somewhat contested. It is known to be drawn from the name of the Allegheny River, but some say this is a Delaware or Lenape word meaning ‘good river’, but others link it to a Lenape legend about the Allegewi tribe, who was supposed to have lived in the vicinity of the river long ago.
