Frank Street?

Ever heard of Frank Street ?
This was the hardest street of all to identify for like so many road allowances in town, you could never locate it.
In 1901,the Pearce Company was still a very dominant force in the village. In fact, Marmora really was a "company town". That year, the Village separated from the Township and became an independent municipality. A new plan was drawn of the Village and two hundred lots were drawn out north of William Street, in behind the place where the Junior Public School was later built. The Pearces proved optimistic for few of the lots have ever been developed, and the numerous streets, including Frank Street, were never laid out. What is odder still is that all this was said to have been done on September 31, 1901.Thirty days hath September, April, June and November!
