Up to the time of the 1920's there were a North Street, a South Street, an East Street, and a West Street, then the outside streets of the platted city. By the 1920's these boundaries had been surpassed and no longer seemed significant. In the spirit of the times, North Street became Harding Way after President Harding; East Street became Wilson Way after President Wilson; West Street became Pershing Street after General Pershing of World War I; and South Street became Charter Way after the League of Nations Charter.
