Horror MythBusters : Does Every Town Really Have An Elm Street?

Photobucket

It was in Freddy's Dead : The Final Nightmare, the sixth installment in the franchise, that Freddy Krueger uttered the now infamous line "Every town has an Elm Street!" It's an iconic quote, but is it true? All these years i've wondered, is Freddy lying to me? How can every single town out there have an Elm Street?! He's gotta be pulling my leg! But ya know, i've lived in only one town my whole life and guess what? It's got an Elm Street in it! So i've always kinda wondered in the back of my mind all these years if maybe he really was speaking the truth....

I want you guys to act as my MythBusters crew here. Does your town have an Elm Street or no? Leave a comment and let me know! Lets get to the bottom of this once and for all!

Well over here in the UK, my old hometown of Middlesbrough had an Elm Street right over the road from our cinema, which was a real treat for us Uber horror geeks. As comes progress both have now been demolished however...

My town has an Elm Ave. That's close enough, right?

Penny said...

My town doesn't have one. Guess I'm escaping the wrath of Freddy.

My current home town of Madison, WI definitely does have an Elm Street. But I can tell you that my birthplace of Monticello, WI, does not have an Elm Street (probably because it's really small though).

Nope. There's a "royal elm road" but not an Elm Street in Calgary.

My parents moved us to a house on Elm Street when I was five, they still live there.

I remember when I saw the movie at a friend's house when I was 7 or 8 and came home and told my mom we needed to move...

My hometown Paso Robles, California has an Elm Street, and it's a residential neighborhood. I passed by it often as a kid, and every time I did, it reminded me of the Nightmare movies. When I was little I used to wonder if the people living there were ever terrorized by Freddy. I am 28 now and to this day I have never been down that street. Not out of fear, of course (well, not anymore anyway, lol) but simply because there has never been a reason to go down it.

Would you be willing to finally take a walk down that street and take a picture of the street sign to prove that you conquered your childhood fears once and for all? ;)

I live in Baton Rouge Louisiana and they have apartments called Elm Street Apartments which are located on Elm drive.Just because street is not in the name doesn't mean it is not a street,road names can have the word road in it, street in it, or drive in it.

alot of ppl are saying there isnt one in their city but a couple just may not know they do. alot of the places that ppl said dont i have looked up and they actually do. just sayin... not saying that you guys are lying but you probably just dont know there is one.

I live in santa maria, ca. Which is about 45 min from Paso robles, and we have an elm street. In fact, its the next street over from mine. I've walked down the street n the only weird thing is that I never see the people who live in those house come outside, or drive off to work. Questionable? Idk. Could just be me. I'm over thinking it now....

Regrettably, I don't believe there is an Elm Street in Nevada City, CA. At least, not that I remember. There is an Elm Avenue in Auburn, CA.

Fortunately, I attend college in Reno, NV. And guess what? Elm St. Reno, NV 89503 is legit!

My town does but there are two things to think about. One Have you really been on every little road in your town? i didnt know for 18 years mine had one. And two he could have meant it in a different way. Elm street was where he started his rath and now he was able to move around so he could have meant it as now any town can be like it was on elm.
