Street name quiz

October 10th, 2014

Is the proper spelling A) Everit Place or B) Everett Place?

Answer: C) None of the above.

It's actually Everitt Place (spelled differently on street signs at each of its three intersections, and only correctly at one), presumably named after August Everitt, who ran a general store that was located at the nearby intersection of today's Farmers and Linden Boulevards. Everitt's store "became the hub of local business and an anchor that fostered residential and commercial development in St. Albans".

    Well, even the map on Flickr spells it incorrectly. :-)
