Pavonia Street


PAVONIA STREET is east of South 2nd Street, and ran at one time from south Kaighn Avenue to Mechanic Street. The street dates back to at least 1863  and was known as Kaighn's Row. By 1871 it had been renamed Kaighn's Alley, and by 1879 was known as Pavonia Street. In more recent times Pavonia Street ends short of Liberty Street. As of the summer of 2011 there are only five houses standing on Pavonia Street, and of them, only one is occupied. Like its sister street, Hyde Park, which lay just east, running from Kaighn Avenue to Liberty Street, Pavonia Street will soon be just a memory.

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