Quincy, WA is on land above the Columbia River and the town grid is Letter streets one way and Number streets the other. The alphabet streets only go up to T. I looked it up, I have been past but not to it, but since Microsoft seems to have set up the largest data center in Quinch, someone travels there on occasion.
And there's this, from Wikipedia:
Although George is the closest town to the Gorge Amphitheatre, Quincy is the closest town that offers services such as motels and a full grocery store. Quincy sees an uptick in population during concerts. Quincy was previously home to Tacos mi Pueblo, one of the most sought-after Mexican restaurants in the area.
The semi-arid climate allows Quincy to go for weeks or months without rain during the summer. This makes nearby water recreation such as Crescent Bar a major draw. Quincy is the closest town with services to Crescent Bar.
Yup. You know we had to have a town of George, Washington. My parents spent some time in that part of the state, but escaped to the West side of the Cascades before I was even aware of what the East side was like. As Dad used to say, "miles and miles of miles and miles."
