Two Mile Creek

Two Mile Creek -- as were Four Mile and Seven Mile creeks -- was named by the army which marched out of Fort Hamilton Oct. 4, 1791. Stephen Cone said the army's first-day march took it to Two Mile Creek, where it "encamped upon the land since owned by William McClelland." That is along Washington Boulevard, west of Eaton Avenue, in the area of the Hamilton West YMCA and Hamilton High School. "They gave those streams which they crossed names corresponding with the distance measured from Fort Hamilton to the place where they crossed the [stream]," Cone explained.
