The Good Ol' Days: Robert Lane and The Key to the City

Receiving The Key to the City is former County Commissioner, Robert Lane. He received this honor for his assistance in helping the City of Eufaula with many of its growing projects, while at the same time, saving the city many thousands of dollars. Robert played a lead role in helping Eufaula in many ways. In particular, he helped to extend Front Street, connecting it to Lakeshore Drive (behind Braum’s), thus opening that area up for development. Not only did this construction allow that area to develop, but it alleviated the traffic congestion on Main Street. For Mr. Lane’s assistance, Johnson got the city to name the stretch of road after the Commissioner, himself. It is now called Robert’s Lane.
