172 46th Street is directly associated with Carol Peterson, the architectural historian who made significant contributions to Pittsburgh’s historiography and advanced historic preservation of the city’s architectural resources.

It is at 172 46th Street, her home for nearly 16 years, that Carol Peterson completed the majority of her house histories, researched and wrote “Allegheny City: A History of Pittsburgh’s North Side”, completed her contribution to Lawrenceville’s National Register nomination, landmarked several buildings locally, advocated for Pittsburgh’s built environment, and would display the numerous awards and recognitions for her life’s work.
