2. Dr. Streets' Dental Office

Dr. Streets’ Dental Office, 1125 West Washington

One of South Bend's first black dentists, Dr. Streets served African American and Polish patients from his west side office. In addition to serving the community as a dentist, Dr. Streets and his wife Odie Mae (Johnson) Streets worked to secure the civil rights of the city's black resident through their membership in the NAACP.
