Strathmore (1925)

A large section of the Chittenden farm with the Bailey school lot in its southwest corner. Like Ardson Heights, which had the same designer, Strathmore avoided the rigid, cardinal-point layout of much of the city, and features lovely, curving, tree-lined streets.

The north-south stretch of Collingwood Drive (named for C. B. Collingwood) was originally called Haslett Street, the name given by the Fairview plat. It was changed in 1971, after East Lansing had expanded enough toward the northeast to encompass Haslett Road. As Collingwood crosses Snyder it transitions from a north-south to an east-west street; there the house numbers were fudged somewhat to prevent a gap in the numbering between 600 N. Collingwood and 700 E. Collingwood.
