Treasure Chest Thursday: Map of Davidson County, Tennessee, 1871
Last November, I took advantage of a Cyber Monday sale and purchased a map of Davidson County, Tennessee in 1871 from Historic Map Works. I had wanted this map for years. It is now hanging on the wall in my hallway. I can see so many details about the area, including the names and locations of churches, schools, and residents' homes; the streets of Nashville and other area roads; and the locations of specific districts. The map has given me a better sense of where my ancestors were living in 1871. Specific information about the map can be found here.
