Rue Saint-Vincent is a street in the 18th arrondissement of Paris, lying partly in Old Montmartre.

The path of Rue St. Vincent was noted on the Jouvin de Rochefort map of 1672.

In 1790, Montmartre was located just outside the limits of Paris. That year, under the revolutionary government of the National Constituent Assembly, it became the commune of Montmartre, with its town hall located on place du Tertre, site of the former abbey.

This name, St. Vincent, originates from the name of a former owner M. Vincent Compoint and was also known as Rue Vincent Compoint.

By 1825 the path was called "path of St. Vincent Streets." Orignally a path in the former town of Montmartre, it was classified as a Paris highway by the decree of 23 May 1863.

In 1904, the Saint Vincent street was lit by a single kerosene lantern.
