A neighbor of mine contacted me earlier today and said that his 8-year-old son was wondering why all of the street names in Campus Hills begin with the letter S.
I remember reading about this about five years ago, but now I can't find the original document I was reading at the time. Very frustrating!
A thorough search on the web as well as a call in to our local library proved fruitless as well.
So, here's my hunch. I'm placing the all-call to my faithful readers to either back me up or prove me wrong.
Street names in a development are often named by the developers themselves. According to the Campus Hills History page on the Campus Hills Community Association website, Campus Hills was developed by two gentlemen, Ralph DeChairo and Anthony Sanzo. I believe that Sanzo accepted the responsibility of naming all the streets, and he did so using the first letter of his last name for each and every street.
How DeChairo got cheated out of the deal, I have no idea.
So, Towson: Am I right? Or is there another, more logical (or illogical) reason for all these S's?
