"July 19, 1909...before the Council sat Richard Collings encouraging the Council to approve paving the street with brick, and John Monaghan fighting for the streets to be paved with cement. Up until this point, the streets were either finished with cedar logs or were left as dirt or gravel. As the night concluded, it was voted that the contract by approved to pave the streets with cement. This would cost just $1.55 per square yard to pave from Chisholm Street from First Street to Fifth Street...Alpena's first paved road became a reality in October 1909." from Historic Downtown Alpena Scavenger Hunt booklet written by Kat Tomaszewski.
