Collins Township was a township in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania, in the northeast part of what is now Pittsburgh. It included most of the present city east of Lawrenceville, north of Penn Avenue, and south of the Allegheny River. It was formed in 1850 from a northern portion of Peebles Township and was named for Thomas Collins, a prominent lawyer. On 30 June 1868, Collins Township along with its neighbors were incorporated into Pittsburgh. The former township became wards 18, 19, and 21 of the expanded city.
