Look at the 1893 Sanborn Map for Miles City and you’ll notice a street that no longer exists. One block north of Washington, the 1893 map shows what was once Ohio Street. Where did it go? Who stole Ohio Street? : -) Seems pretty likely that Ohio disappeared when the Milwaukee came through in 1907.



You can find Sanborns for Miles here – they’re worth a little browsing time.

Sanborn maps can show some interesting things. This is a snip from 1893 shows the corner of Main and 9th Street.

Looks like Dickerson Street got misplaced as well.

Careful David, you'll give some who post here a hard-on. That's the theme song for the Rush Limblab show... speaking of "pretenders".

Ohio Street was vacated for the Milwaukee Railroad. Having a DICKERSON and a DICKINSON apparently struck somebody as dumb and DICKERSON became Ivy. And Garland Street was originally Carland Street but somebody's handwriting confused a mapmaker and the mistake stuck. Sort of like Cleveland.
