The ninety acres, extending from Fair to Eleventh Avenues, including 26 lots on Fair Street, 25 lots on Main Street, and 8 lots on Bridge Street. The subdivision was named for Hinchea Petway, a wealthy merchant who had owned the land and whose fine brick home, built across Main Street approximately 90 yards west, had to be razed.
