1875 Grand Avenue

Shown on maps before 1875, the main road going north from Grand River Avenue was known as Mill Street and the road heading south from the main intersection was called South Street. But, as shown in the short little blurb published in The Fowlerville Review, late in 1875, the north/south road would now be known as Grand Avenue. Various views of 1875 and 1895 maps can be found in my book, The Fowlerville Chronicles, where the street names are shown.

And, as a side note, yesterday's squint shot makes mention of today's Mill Street, where the Fowlerville Library now resides.
