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!

  1. I love doing the A to Z! You are off to a roaring good start.

  2. Why did you choose Huntington place for this post? I love your blog theme.

  3. That is a funny sign. I wonder if they really would tow away other kinds of cars?

    I would love to know why they changed the name, but you already said you didn’t know that answer. 🙂 These types are posts are great for building interest in the history of a place and can lead me down bunny trail after bunny trail for hours. haha

    Have a blessed evening!

  4. We have had streets around here where the name has been changed. For a while it creates a bit of chaos.
