McKinley Street, Bellefontaine, Ohio.jpg
McKinley Street in Bellefontaine, Ohio, which claims to be the shortest street in the world, ca. 1920-1940.

McKinley Street is located in Bellefontaine, Ohio. Only thirty feet long, Bellefontaine residents claim that it is the shortest street in the world. Locals named the street after United States President William McKinley, who was born in Ohio.

Some people claim that Elgin Street in Bacup, Lancs, United Kingdom is the shortest street in the world. It is only seventeen feet long. However, supporters of McKinley Street are quick to point out that Elgin Street is not open to motor vehicle traffic, while driving is permitted on McKinley Street, which serves as a connector between Columbus and Garfield Avenues.
