Saturday in the Park: Alma Park


Alma Park and Alma Street are both named for the middle daughter of George H. Peck. Alma was born in January of 1888 and lived with her father most of her life, including at the time of the 1930 census. This wasn’t unheard of, but again- I heard that she and her brother Leland were both sickly. I was told there were some biographies on them at the archives so I’m going to check it out. But perhaps the Leland and Alma parks and streets are so close together because they lived together with their father for so many years. I’m not sure what happened to them when their father passed in 1940. I’ll let you know if I find out.
