Willard Street


WILLARD STREET runs for one block, north from Elm Street to Vine Street, between North 8th Street and Linwood Street. The street first appears in city directories after 1890.

The only house still standing where someone lives with a listed telephone number on Willard Street in 2008 is 633 Willard.

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

"A TIP O' THE HELMET TO" FireFighter Jim Cusick and Captain Emmitt Smith of Engine 6, and Firefighter Ronnie Frank and Firefighter Bill Wickward of Engine 2, for the dramatic rescues of four trapped and unconscious children, performed at "all hands-Box #1227", transmitted at 2101 hours on 26 March, 1977 for a fire located at 628 Willard Street. Professional teamwork on the part of all units, and fast extrication by members, resulted in the saving of three lives. Units operating at all hands-1227 were Engines 6, 2, and 1, Ladder Company 1, and the 1st Battalion under the command of Battalion Chief Ken Penn. A job well done. A tragic note: One child succumbed to injuries, following removal from the firegrounds.

Her name was Sarah Lavinia Alloway. They resided at 815 Market Street when their second child, Eleanor Jennie Alloway, was born on December 10, 1921.

They lived at 608 Carmen Street when their fifth child, William Robert Alloway was born, December 31, 1926. The family had moved to 436 Benson Street, when their sixth child, Anna Louse Alloway came on August 5, 1928. When the seventh and last child, Mary Elizabeth was born on August 30, 1930, the family was living at 422 Main Street. The reason given for the continual moving was because of the increase in the family size requiring larger accommodations.
