Places used to be like this. Why do you think you see so many “Oak st” and “Cedar Ln?” Funny how science and innovation can lead right back where we started

And then you have the street I live on that was recently renamed to a species of tree that’s not found in the area I live in. There’s lots of oaks on my street, but not the specific species they renamed the street to. Also if you’re wondering, my street was originally named after a confederate general who had surrendered nearby. I wish I had gotten to vote on the new name.
