The towns and cities that make up Halifax Regional Municipality have a fascinating street-level history, spelled out in names that memorialize community leaders, important events and landmarks.
Jubilee Road was named for King George III's jubilee year, but Barrington Street, Halifax's main downtown thoroughfare, has an unknown pedigree. City powerbrokers have been immortalized in such names as Inglis Street, Cogswell Street, Cornwallis Street, Joseph Zatzman Drive and Wentworth Street. Others--Rockingstone Road, Spring Garden Road, Windmill Road--take their names from familiar landmarks. In many cases, contributors have uncovered street name histories that were once completely obscure.
Halifax Street Names includes contributions from writers with a lively interest in local history, giving derivations and brief histories of more than 180 streets in Bedford, Dartmouth, Halifax and Sackville.

"Halifax Street Names will appeal to the longtime resident and the newcomer seeking a better understanding of his or her adopted home. The pictures and text call up memories for the former and generate interest in the later."

- Mary Guildford Halifax Herald

"A treasure trove of information about local streets."

- Skana Gee The Daily News

"The result is a wonderful new book, Halifax Street Names. With dozens of photos and contributions from 60 writers, it manages to explain the names of more than 700 streets in Halifax Regional Municipality."

- David Swick The Daily News
