BACK IN THE DAY: Street names recall Moreno Valley investors
Day was an early investor in what became Moreno Valley and was among the first landholders in the new tract.
Frederick Street: Named for Frederick Hotchkiss, another prominent resident of New Haven who owned land in the vicinity. He and others eventually established the Moreno Fruit Co.
Heacock Street: Named for Willard J. Heacock, a judge in Gloversville, N.Y., and president of the Gloversville and Jamestown Railroad Co. in that state. Heacock was a heavy investor in the BV&AD Co., even serving as president of the Bear Valley Irrigation Co. for a time. He never lived in what would become Moreno Valley, but his brother Mills Heacock and his family did.
Perris Boulevard: The original name for this road was Judson Street. It later was renamed Perris Boulevard because it connected to the town of Perris to the south. The original namesake was Edward G. Judson, a close friend and business partner of Frank Brown. Judson was involved with Brown in developing Redlands, and his name shows up in the early records of other towns, too.
Nason Street: Named for Frank L. Nason, another early investor and business associate of Frank Brown.
Moreno Beach Drive: Originally, this was Pettit Street, named for Henry H. Pettit, who brought his family to Redlands, and then later Moreno Valley, from Gloversville, N.Y. He joined with others to form the Moreno Fruit Co. and was another early investor.
Theodore Street: Named for Theodore Clark, who had run a successful dry-goods business in Hartford, Conn., before settling in Redlands. He helped establish land sales in Redlands and invested heavily in the Moreno Valley region.
Author’s note: I am indebted to Vi Hamner’s book “Moreno Valley, California, In the Beginning” for details on road names and people.
