Pioneer families and early businessmen have played a key role in the naming of Orange's streets.
In the latest of our series on the city's heritage here are three one-block streets that have changed names.
Today Curran Street is a short street between March and Prince streets.
But historian Ross Maroney said it was originally intended to be three times longer.
Believed to be named after store owner Henry Curran, who owned land on Summer Street including where the current Parkview Hotel sits, it originally started at Summer Street.
By 1925 the southern section alongside Robertson Park had been renamed McNamara Street which was extended from its original location just between Summer and Kite Streets.
The name change likely occurred because the intended middle section of Curran Street was never built and remained a missing link.
Instead that stayed as parkland and is now where the museum/library/tourist office Northcourt precinct sits today.
Orange pioneer Joseph Moulder and his family have played a huge part in the naming of Orange streets.
The one-block street directly south of Wade Park was originally called Endsleigh Street, named after the Moulder family home in Endsleigh Avenue.
It is likely confusion of having two streets with the same name saw the short length renamed as part of the much longer Warrendine Street.
Warrendine Street was created about 1911 when part of the Moulder family estate was sub-divided.
It is named after another Moulder family home, owned by Mr Moulder's son William, which was in Lords Place.
Catto Place is understood to be named after Joseph Moulder's wife Catto Caroline Moulder.
Mr Maroney said the short street was between Edward Street and Endsleigh Avenue to the north of the former Electrolux factory.
The name was retained until it became part of Churchill Avenue which was named after the British war time prime minister Winston Churchill after World War II.
The construction of Churchill Avenue provided a road link between McLachlan Street and Glenroi.
