Baxter
Street


BAXTER STREET originally ran east from 1140 South 7th Street to Mount Ephraim Avenue, between Kaighn Avenue and Sycamore Street. As late as 1924 there were homes in the 700, 900, and 1000 blocks of Baxter street, however by 1947 only two homes were still standing, in the 900 block. 

The 700 block of Baxter Street still exists as of 2006, running from South 7th street to Maurice Street. Satellite images show faint signs of the 1000 block. There are no Baxter Street addresses active as of this writing.

Do you have an Baxter Street memory or picture. Let me know by e-mail so it can be included here.
