Sumner Place (formerly Greenough Street, see below) runs one block from Olive Street southeast to Dorsey Street. Sumner Lane was named for Ed Sumner, a guide who was secretary of the Adirondack Guides' Association. The former Troy Laundry building still stands on the east side of the street, behind the Post Office on Broadway.

My grandmother, Gertrude Harvey, owned 10 Olive for some time, another historic house. My grandmother knew the Sumners, which the street was named after. There was a horse farm on the Sumner Lane. How time changes everything!" January, 2010, HSL Facebook page. —amycatania
