Name Of The Place : Peachtree Street

Name Of The Place (Post#38) : Peachtree Street

Checking which places to see in Atlanta, I found the common address has Peachtree Street. But then later, I realized that the city itself has too many names with the keyword “Peachtree”. Then I checked what’s the reason behind the name. From my research, the site were Atlanta grew where the major village is called Standing Peachtree (has dispute if its Standing Pitch tree, which later altered to “peach”). The said site has known to have lots of Pine trees which also called as “pitch” trees due to their sap. A remarkable origin of the name. The photo is part of Atlanta Walks Photo Collection November 2015.
