Does anyone know who Wilson Street is named after?
Montana Homestead Land Company, a corporation formed for the purpose of acquiring title to real properties and platting the same into lots and blocks for townsite purposes. [...] About a month after this property was turned over to the corporation, a plat of NORTH MILES CITY was filed in the office of the county clerk and recorder, whereby the entire 320 acres was platted into streets and alleys, a park called Lansing Park and 124 city blocks. The east and west streets in this townsite were called avenues and were numbered from First (on the south end) and running to Nineteenth Avenue on the north end. The north and south streets were given such names as Wilson, Garfield, Washington, Lincoln, Grand, Lansing and Broadway.

And I believe there was a lot more hot air being expelled at the Bohundreds' house than at mine.
