A to Z Challenge: H is for Huntington Place (#AtoZChallenge)
Welcome to my April 2017 Great and Powerful 2017 Blogging from A to Z Challenge!
Today, H is for Huntington Place!
Here is a Google map showing where Huntington Place is located in James Bay.
What I could find out about Huntington Place:
Huntington Place runs (one block) from Toronto Street to Avalon Road, near Beacon Hill Park. It used to be called Phoenix Place, but I don’t know when or why the name changed. And I only know this from a picture reference from the BC Archives. One one side of the street are apartment buildings, and on the other side are houses. Two of those houses are on the Heritage register: 310 and 314, “twins”, right next door to each other – you can read more about them by clicking on the links below.
So, there you have it. That’s all I know about this street. Short and sweet!

Here are some pictures I took of Huntington Place.
Looking toward Avalon. That’s Kevin walking ahead of me, wondering why I’m posting about Huntington Street when I haven’t been able to find out anything interesting about it…
I just liked this sign.
The turn onto the dead end part of Avalon.
Looking back towards Toronto.
What else do you want to know about Huntington Place? Ask away, and I will see what I can find out for you!
