Street Map - Pre Barkers Reservoir

Recommended Posts

Here's one for discussion...

I am looking for a map of the Barkers Reservoir before the Corps took over the land. HCAD shows a network of "closed" streets as well as an abandoned railroad ROW. SOme of the old street ROW's are still visable via Google maps and others.

There's a thread around here somewhere where someone took pictures of old foundations that were north of 10 and west of 6, and we looked up some historic aerials. I don't think we focused on the area south of I-10, though.

Is the map you're looking at available online?

Check the Addicks topographic maps from the Perry-Castaneda collection. There is a map from 1919, 1949, 1955 as well as later years.
