Carnegie is a suburb in Melbourne and is situated just 12 km south-east from Melbourne’s central business district.
Originally called Rosstown, after William Murray Ross , a prominent property developer and entrepreneur, a name change came about due to Ross’ failed speculative developments and in 1909 is was renamed Carnegie in an ultimately unsuccessful attempt to secure funds for a library from the philanthropist Andrew Carnegie.
The original name lives on in the name of the local hotel, and Rosstown Road. Leila Road is named after Mr. Ross’s wife, and Grange Road is named after Ross’s estate, The Grange, which has since been subdivided and is now suburban housing estates.
