List of streets and their namesakes.

Guide to streets

The system of numbering the streets is somewhat similar to the Washington plan. Each block represents 100 numbers, whether heading east, west, north or south. The city is divided into four sections.[1]

  • Fifth – South of 500 W Main Street
  • First – North of East Main and East of North First, or Northeast
  • Second – South of East Main and east of South First, or Southeast
  • Third – North of West Main and west of North First, or Northwest
  • Fourth – South from 402 West Main
  • Sixth-and-a-Half – South from 606 Dice
  • Seventh-and-a-Half – South from 620 Dice
  • Main – The dividing line between north and south streets, runs east from First to C & O Lower Depot, and west from First to University.
  • First – The dividing line between east and west streets, runs north and south from Main to city limits.
