Comments

Speculation: The first E - W street, 8th, may have allowed growth where a 1st Street might be present day 380th Avenue.

Avenues are founders names:Primghar-Pumphrey through Rerick; Welch for attorney Joseph Welch, the Primghar native who was famous in the McCarthy hearings. Metcalf for long time banker, Harold Metcalf, who provided land and financial support for the golf course.

Thankks to O'Brien County Assessor office for their help.

Super-scripted;

1 South of B40, some referred to McCormack as Silk Stocking Avenue for the palatial homes.

2 Railroad Avenue - south of present First Steet North

3 House numbers north 'fit'; house numbers south 'fit' the south street.

4 One undeveloped paved block N of golf course parking. Name from plat map.
