    The Grand Army of the Republic (GAR) was an organization founded by Union army veterans of the U.S. Civil War. It was founded in Illinois but I think the first meetings were held in Indianapolis, Indiana. So that's why you'll find roads and buildings named after the organization in the Midwest. There was a GAR building near the courthouse in my city, but it's now occupied by a law firm. Of course, all GAR veterans/members have long since passed away.

    I used to live in a small town a few years ago that had a private street named Yoda Lane. I actually knew one of the guys who lived on that street and he said the cops had busted lots of folks for trying to steal that sign.
