A Place Called Carnegie
When the Borough of Mansfield and the Borough of Chartiers in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania merged in 1894 they named the new borough Carnegie after Andrew Carnegie. Carnegie was so pleased with this honor that he donated $354,000 for a library site, building, and endowment. More on the Carnegie Library in Carnegie, Pennsylvania can be found on Glenn A. Walsh's website.
