Why are several buildings on Laird Street referenced to a 'Miriam'- the Health Centre and Nursery, for example?

Who is Miriam?

Possibly biblical
Numbers 12 narrates Aaron and Miriam both objecting to the marriage of Moses to a Cushite woman, to which God responds by appearing in a pillar of cloud and expressing support for Moses. Afterwards, only Miriam is struck with tzaraat; after Aaron asks Moses to intercede for her, Moses asks God to heal her, and she recovers within seven days. (Numbers 12)


The original medical centre used to be in Miriam Place by the library

Agree with Derek's edit, named after the old place and Miriam Place.

God help us,
Come yourself,
Don't send Jesus,
This is no place for children.
