“The” [ðə]


“The” (the definite article) is one of the most common words in both written and spoken English. In hindsight, it’s surprising how many Agincourt and Fennimore county physical locations begin with “The”. It almost seems the community believed itself entitled to just one of anything. And so, we have (in alphabetical order):

  • The Academy
  • The Aerodrome
  • The Auditorium
  • The Avenue
  • The Barrens
  • The Beehive [DeBijenkorf; sorry, it’s Dutch]
  • The Blenheim
  • The Boulevard
  • The Carousel
  • The Commons
  • The Franklin
  • The Haven
  • The Hump
  • The Last Resort
  • The Mile
  • The Mill
  • The Mound
  • The Obelisk
  • The Orchard
  • The Orpheum
  • The Roadhouse
  • The Roost
  • The Shades
  • The Square
