Beyond Franklin

The etymology of a street name comes from various identifications. Some come from natural surroundings: a river, common birds or indigenous trees, as found in various neighbourhoods like Eagle Ridge and Parsons Creek. The Beyond Franklin series explores Fort McMurray’s historical figures and local dignitaries, and why their mark on the community was rewarded with a street named after them.
