Sheraden (Pittsburgh)

Sheraden is a neighborhood in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in the United States. Nearby neighborhoods include Windgap, Chartiers City, Crafton Heights and Elliott; the neighborhood was named for William Sheraden, a settler who gave land for the construction of a railroad depot in exchange for the naming rights. Sheraden's original homestead still stands at 2803 Bergman Street distinguished for the two sycamore trees which grow together to form an arch, a legacy of Sheraden's horticulturalist grandson. Incorporated as Sheraden Borough in 1894, it grew and was annexed by the City of Pittsburgh in 1907. Shortly thereafter, the Public School Board of Pittsburgh opened numerous educational facilities around Sheraden, including Langley High School, completed in 1923, which replaced the former borough's Riverview High School. Sheraden grew to become a hub for German immigrants to Pittsburgh. However, in the 70's when suburbia was coming up, the Irish and Germans moved from Sheraden into places like Robinson and Crafton.

Most of the Irish schoolchildren went to Holy Innocents grade school, closed along with its parish. Holy Innocents had a high school.
