Thanks to the passion for history of Caroline Wadzeck, Dayton citizens can know the interesting origin of the street names in Dayton. Below is a synopsis from her book, The Streets of Dayton, Texas - History by the Block. published in 2014. The book provides much more detail. She dedicates the book to Robert "Bobby" Harris who was "A lifelong Dayton resident and community leader who had a wealth of knowledge about Dayton's history" but who passed away the year before it was published.
