Octagon
Road


OCTAGON ROAD is, well, it's an octagonal road running that runs around Yorkship Square, one block removed from the square itself. Addresses on Octagon include prefix, depending on where the house lies in relation to Yorkship Square. There are eight prefixes- North, Northeast, Northwest, South, Southeast, Southwest, East, and West. Octagon Road was laid out and the homes built during World War I as part of the Yorkship Village project.  

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