SPECIAL REPORT: Street names, histories and mysteries

Many street names throughout the Four States honor our heritage - people or industries that helped make us what we are.  Sometimes those streets follow an obvious pattern, but sometimes the pattern isn't very clear.

If you know your alphabet you shouldn't get lost in Joplin's Royal Heights addition.  But if you know your U.S. presidents you might get lost on the streets of Pittsburg.  And is the legend behind the name of Maiden Lane in Joplin really true?

Watch this two part series by KOAM's Dowe Quick to explore some of the myths and truths concerning street names in the Four States.

Part 1 airs May 15, 2014 on KOAM News at 6; and, Part 2 airs on KOAM News at 10.
