Ground in History, Redefining our Future
Named after local landowner Thomas Rankin, our borough specialized in manufacturing steel and wire goods during the early 20th century. Rankin is a mere 10 miles south of downtown Pittsburgh and is located within Allegheny County along the Monongahela River. The area’s most known landmark is the George Rankin Jr. Memorial Bridge. Approximately 0.5 square miles in area, Rankin is home to several businesses.
