True Stories of Amazing People and Places in Texas

Life in Hale County Tx 1850-1950

Pacific Street was renamed to Broadway in 1916 at the request of the Young Menís Business Alliance, a forerunner of the Chamber of Commerce. With that action, Plainview erased such colorful street names as Eureka, Pacific, Restriction, Cottage, Rosefelt, Portues and Pike and replaced them with either numbers or, in alphabetical order, the names of trees (east of Broadway) and major cities (west of Broadway).

"Beginning at the present Pacific Street, which becomes Broadway and continuing east: Covington becomes Ash, Adams becomes Beech, Walnut becomes Cedar, Cottage becomes Date, McClelland becomes Elm, Sterling becomes Fir, Price becomes Grove, Strong becomes Hickory, Charles becomes Ivy, Ridge becomes Juniper Street."
