I can across these cool maps the other day, well actually I can’t take credit for them, my husband found them and emailed them to me. But either way, I thought they were fascinating and wanted you to enjoy them as well.
The first thing I noticed was how all the farms had names like Taylor and Kilgour- sound familiar? Also, as you can see, Oakley was established before Hyde Park- so take take Hyde Park! Looks like Hyde Park might have been called Sharpsburg- I much prefer Hyde Park, what you do think?
I wish I could show these to you better but the resolution isn’t so great. If you look along the river you can see two old cities- Mt Tusculum and Columbia. I could spend hours just looking around at all the Oakley and Cincinnati streets and landmarks. Why don’t we still cities with names like Montauk and Rose Hill?
Thanks for looking- go out and enjoy what looks to be a beautiful weekend!
