Abbotsford Streets Named

At a meeting of businessmen of Abbotsford on Friday evening, a drawing of the streets of the village, by engineer Carrington, was shown, and names of the streets and cross streets were decided on.

Starting with what is familiarly called Main Street, the streets running north and south, going east were named First, Second, Third, etc. across Highway 13, to the east limits of the town.

On the Westside of the Main Street they were named avenues, running north and south.

The street at the Waldhart Grocery corner was designated as Second Avenue and the avenues progress numerically to the west through Barker’s addition.

The opening from Highway 29 past the school buildings is only an alley and so has no street name.

All cross streets on both sides of the railroad tracks are named after trees. Eventually, when it can be done, street makers will be erected and then it is hoped to number the houses on the various streets and avenues.

This is a project sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce and is being paid for by that organization.
