00 ~ hobart st ~86 viewsI have no idea where Hobart Sreet got its name. If anyone has any information on this street's name, please contact me. I do know that some of the old maps refer to it as "Rosedale St".

I found out that the name was changed from Rosedale St to Hobart St on 8/5/1957.

hobart & 139 harmon - gazebo95 viewsThis is Hobart St. It is a connector (alley) between Harmon Av and Rosedale Cr. Old maps and plats show it as Rosedale St. I am not sure where the name Hobart originated. The name was changed from Rosedale St to Hobart St on 8/5/1957.

This photo was taken from about the middle of Hobart looking west towards Harmon.

When I was growing up it had a tar and gravel surface. Some time in the late 1970's it was paved. Several years ago it was scheduled to be repaved, but the city wanted to widen it, which would require cutting all of the pretty trees along both sides of it and would spoil the beauty of a "natural tunnel" appearance. The neighbors urged the city to leave it alone. A good decision I think.
