East on Walnut
Walking on Walnut just before Christmas, I noticed, once again, the sidewalks running from houses out to the street, indicating that, at one time, parking was available on both sides of Walnut, Main Street too. People could leave their house and walk out to the street where their car waited. If I recall correctly, both streets were made one way back in the 1980s, with the promise that on street parking would remain. There are spots of on-street parking found on Walnut but not many and none on Main Street.
