A Photo Tour Of The United States
Presidents Through Twin Cities
Area City Street Signs

Introduction Many cities use a naming scheme for city streets in order to make the street arrangement easier to remember. Minneapolis has a number of segments where street names are in alphabetical order. In other areas, names of trees and famous generals are used. One that interests me is the series of streets named after US Presidents in northeast Minneapolis. Here is a photo tour of those street signs.

Note that not all Presidents have streets named after them in the twin cities metro area. Also, some street names are duplicated between cities. The Ford Parkway sign is actually named for the Ford Motor Company assembly plant, but it works well in this case for Gerald Ford. Clinton Ave certainly predates President Clinton's election victory in 1992. East Bush Lake Road and West Bush Lake Road are two different roads that each run north and south on opposite sides of Bush Lake in west Bloomington. I picked the east road for George HW Bush since he has the home in Maine, while I picked the west road for George W Bush since he has the ranch in Waco. President Reagan appears not to be honored with a street name anywhere within a reasonable drive of Minneapolis.
