Alvernon—Origin of the Street Name

How Alvernon street in Tucson was named is basically a mystery.

Alvernon Drive was completed in October 1911.  The best guess for its name origin is that an area real estate firm employed an AL (fred) or AL (bert) Vernon, whose name became attached to the street.
