Duval County Map 1898
« on: January 26, 2016, 03:35:59 PM »
As interesting as the map is... the statistics and advertisements along the edges are extremely informative... many old names etc... Includes water depths... Indian mound locations... old forts...

In a boat at sea one of the men began to bore a hole in the bottom of the boat. On being remonstrating with, he answered, "I am only boring under my own seat." "Yes," said his companions, "but when the sea rushes in we shall all be drowned with you."

When I see an old map my instinct is to look for Fort Caroline notations.

This one says for one spot:

"Confederate Fort"
"US Fort"
"French Fort Caroline 1567" (twice)



If I read this map correctly, that would put it at the base of the bluff next to St Johns Creek.



How about a listing for the "Site of Spanish Fort" on Empire Point. This map has all kinds of easter eggs.

I'd imagine the Spanish fort is a misplaced San Nicholas.  This map predates the shipyards that were on what is now Bishop Kenny.  When dredging the shipyards they found some artifacts that would indicate the fort was there vs empire point.

That's very cool!  There is a lot of stuff on this map...

Looks like Z. Kingsley owned most of what is now San Jose...

Just found the wreck of the C.S. Maple Leaf just off Ross Point... nearby along the shoreline in Mandarin shows a house labeled H.B. Stowe...   8)

Perhaps you can order one through the Library of Congress...  It is downloadable for free...
