Comments

Actually, the current name of Oakwood Place is Sycamore *Place,* as the Callard article notes.

Victoria (resident of one of the 8 houses on Sycamore Pl)


I've heard it said that Liberty Street used to be called "Freiheit Street", but was changed because of anti-German sentiment during one of the World Wars. Anyone know anything about this?


I have some photos from a map of Ann Arbor from 1854 and it was called Liberty St. back then as well.
