Halls street names reflect Indians, plants
Placeholder Image
The late Lester Hosch, a Hall County businessman, consummate Rotarian and historian, once inventoried Gainesville street names, giving the origin of some of them. Hosch wanted more streets bearing names of Indians or trees. At that time he counted 140 streets named for families or important community residents, five for flowers, five for Indians, six for directions, such as Atlanta Street and Athens Street, and two for vines.
