Orange County Almanac

October 03, 1994

During the housing boom of the 1960s, county officials changed the names of many roads to make them consistent throughout the county.

Roads originally named after tiny towns and junctions--such as Wintersburg, Smeltzer and Delhi--were among those changed. The goal of the name changes was to make it easier for drivers to find their way around the county. Here are a few of the name changes:

Old name Current name Smeltzer Avenue Edinger Avenue Bay Boulevard Seal Beach Boulevard Stanton Avenue/ Beach Boulevard Huntington Beach Boulevard Wintersburg Avenue/Delhi Road Warner Avenue Verano Avenue Euclid Street Wright Street Brookhurst Street Cannery Street Magnolia Street
