Coaldale Centennial Selfie Contest
Check back each week for a new Fun Fact and a new location to find our Centennial Owl. Find Mr. Bogle, take a selfie with him, tag us with #CoaldaleCentennial and share it on social media to be entered into our monthly draw for a plush Centennial Owl keepsake.
Did you know that upon founding in 1905, Coaldale had a different street numbering system than today?
20th St (HWY 845) First Ave
19th St Second Ave
18th St Third Ave
17th St Fourth Ave
20th Ave (Main) Main St
19th Ave Railway St or Chinese Alley
The first business blocks were comprised of blocks 7,8,9, and 10 (on attached map). Each block was divided into lots with a frontage of 25 feet and depth around 150 feet, all of which could be subdivided.
Share your selfie. Our Owl is set up at ATB 1821 20 Ave until Sept 16 and then he will be on the move again.
