Holtzclaw Avenue

I'd love to know the history of Holtzclaw Avenue. (My grandmother was a Holtzclaw.) Incidentally, I'm also related to Crutchfields (the author's last name.)

Three Notch RD

Three Notch Rd passes along Peavine Ridge that has three Gaps in the ridge. Mt. Pisgah Rd. Poplar Springs Rd. and Boynton Drive go through those gaps (or notches) in the ridge. That is also part of the way naming was accomplished. All other roads go over the ridge.

Street Named after a Living Person

I am so glad that naming a street after a living person was not an issue when my Dad, Jim Armstrong, was a developer. Janeview Drive was named for me in 1964 when I was 12 years old and Mark Lane was named for my brother when he was 9 years old. Of course, back then we lived in Tyner, TN long before it was in the City!
