Most people buy a house that is already on a street.
However, in the case of several streets in Orange, the house or the property, came long before the street.
In our continuing series on the history of Orange streets here's four named after properties.
Just 18 years after arriving in Sydney Joseph Moulder had risen from being a hutkeeper to William McLeod of Bathurst to being granted 633 acres of land on the eastern boundary of Orange.
Orange District Historical Society then-treasurer Les Hughes wrote in the 1980s Mr Moulder soon gained two further grants totalling about 1200 acres on the southern boundary of Orange.
He said in 1858 Mr Moulder built his second home Endsleigh House which is still occupied today.
It lent its name to Endsleigh Avenue on which is it now located.
The Bowen Terrace units on Bathurst Road have a major link to Glenroi.
Mr Hughes said Maurice Bowen opened a tannery and boot factory on the Bathurst Road in the 1860s.
"By 1870 he was treating 4000 hides and 2000 skins annually and turned out 200 pairs of boots a week," he said.
In 1876 he built Bowen Terrace and built his own home near the tannery.
Mr Hughes wrote that it was called Glenroi, from which Glenroi Avenue is named.
Mr Hughes also wrote that Campdale Place is named after William Sampson's grant of 640 acres in 1836 named Campdale.
It was on the western boundary of Orange where the Kinross Wolaroi PLC site is now located.
The Rosedale property, after which Rosedale Place is named, was on the eastern side of Orange.
Originally owned by George Forster Blackett the land was bought by John Tom Lane who named it Rosedale.
Mr Hughes said it was then sold to William Dale who lived on it from 1846.
"Dale arrived in Australia in 1841 and first worked for William Lane," he said.
"William Lane had taken up land on Frederick Valley Creek opposite the Blackett holdings. In 1845 Mr Dale went to Rosedale and in 1865 acquired most of [it] and later it all passed into his hands."
