Default How To Tell Which Side is Even or Odd Numbers?

Is there a general rule to tell which side of the road is even or odd number?

I thought I knew but not any more. The online maps only show the vicinity not the exact location.

I *always* thought it was even on west/north and odd on east/south.

And then I visited a podunk town who's numbers were the reverse of my theory.

So, I'm now clueless.

Dayton, Ohio ... While hardly a podunk town, one address I lived at was 311, on the north side of the street; another was 56, on the south side of the street.

But that's the exception; everywhere else I've lived has conformed to your rule.

I'm on the east side and my number is even. My friend 2 block away is also on the east side and her number is odd.

It varies by jurisdiction. In the fair city of Angels Camp the street numbers flop from odd/even at the major intersection in town because there used to be 2 hamlets before Angels Camp incorporated.

Strangest I've seen is a subdivision where the houses were numbered in the order they were built. Best the postman loves that!

I'm in Boise, ID, and my work is even on the East and my home is odd on the South, so I've got one like your rule and one opposite.

My grandparents house in Idaho Falls is even on the South.

I don't think there is any overall rule to go by.

The side of the street with numbers that end in 0, 2, 4, 6, or 8 is the even side.

I hope that helps.
