Geocache Description:

Cogswell Street is part of the series giving the origin of Halifax street names.

Cogswell Street, Halifax.." According to the Reverend George Hill's 1892 paper on street names in Halifax, this was first called Willow Tree Street, on account of a large willow at the corner of Gottingen. Later as a compliment to Henry H Cogswell, who owned a considerable amount of property near St Andrew's Cross[present day intersection of Quinpool and Robie],it came to be called Cogswell Street. One of the founders of the first bank established in Halifax, Cogswell amassed a considerable fortune. He could not have imagined the concrete behemoth---the Cogswell Interchange--- that carries his family's name in the twenty-first century." Christine Macy-- Halifax Street Names
