Have you ever wondered how a city or street received its name? It may have been the name of an original pioneer, those founding entrepreneurs that rode into town on horses, pulling covered wagons and riding in train cars in the 1800’s. They build homes, dug wells and began farming the land & raising livestock. Some were here for the gold, others to find a new opportunity…they came together to create a community.
