Granville Avenue

From HistoryWiki

Granville Avenue Soundex Code G651

6200 N., from 1800 W. to 3200 W. This street is in Edgewater and West Ridge - ONLY

The land developer John Lewis Cochran (1857-1923) probably named the street for Granville, New York. Some people claim, however, that the street was named for the North Side subdivider Granville Bates, or for one of the city’s earliest school teachers, Granville Temple Sproat.

The Chicago City Council passed a lengthy ordinance January 14, 1895, rationalizing the street naming system. Granville Avenue only exists in West Ridge and runs westward from Western Avenue to the North Shore Channel.
