I finished reading the article in Sunday’s paper, “Main Street Association sets sights on downtown history guide,” written by Berry Eberling. The article was great; however the caption under the picture read, “walks on West Texas Street.”
I have lived here since 1962 and it has always been my understanding that Texas Street started at the curve of Armijo High School and continues to Pennsylvania Avenue. When you cross Pennsylvania Avenue, then Texas Street becomes West Texas Street.
I have noticed this error before in articles about Texas Street and just needed to vent.
I sincerely hope the Fairfield Main Street Association is able to create a brochure to bring more people downtown. In so many ways our downtown in 1962 was so great. It was really nice to move from a big city (Long Beach) to a small town where people knew one another.
We can’t go back, but let us go forward in a more positive and productive way.
