Street Names

Who named the streets (Holt St.), and who came up with the names? How can I find out if Jack Wright built much of Ventura, back around 1930?

Mckee street

my street was named after a guy named McKee, who bought land from the Fraisers. And I bet Fraiser was named after them. When I first moved here (1972) Several of them still lived here. One of them lived up in the canyon. Everyone was scared to death of her. Well one day she came walking in my yard> I figured one of my kids must have done something. She was really a nice person. Gave me books for my youngest. Another one sat at the store. She was super nice. Then there was Miss Juanita. She was very old.Said her husband bought her when she was 13. She did not have floors in her house. Had some good stories to tell.Casino lane was named after the canyon which is Los casino. I could go on forever> don't know nothing about Holt
