X-Files Friday: Mulder Ave. and Scully Way

The truth is in here: Why Mulder and Scully meet in Ottawa's east end

Laura Drake, The Ottawa Citizen

While the suburbs creep out many urban loft-dwellers, sending shivers down their gentrified spines, only one intersection in this city can be described as positively paranormal -- Mulder Avenue and Scully Way. For years, the signs have mystified residents of King's Pointe, the development in the city's east end that is home to the supernatural street signs."People ask about it all the time. It's the first thing they comment on," said Judy Letourneau, who bought her house on the corner of Mulder Avenue and Scully Way five and a half years ago, when it was brand new. For the uninitiated, FBI agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully were the two main characters on The X-Files, one of the most popular science-fiction television series ever.
I took a look for this fateful intersection and was not the least bit surprised to see the closest numbered highway to it was Route 17.


  1. Hey, now thats pretty cool.

    I lived on both Hemingway Dr. & Thoreau Dr. in the same neigborhood growing up.

  2. You didn't mention if the streets were named or re-named after X-Files was created.

  3. That's the original names of the streets. It was a new development.
