Oregon to Texas
America · Amérique · Mikinaakominis
Did you make a wrong turn? How can you be near Oregon, Indiana, and Texas?
No, this street isn’t part of America – no passports required here! – but many of the roads in this neighbourhood are named after American states. That’s why many people call this area the “mini-States.” It’s our way of recognizing our neighbour to the South. There are streets in Sault Ste. Marie that are named after Canadian provinces, too. How many provinces, territories or states can you name?
