Map of Coralville landowners, 1870s

Dublin Core

Description

A map of the city of Coralville, circa 1870 (Lovetinsky et al., p. 42). The lines drawn designate the property boundaries of acres of land belonging to different landowners at that time; their names are listed to indicate which acres they owned. The flouring mill, paper mill, and woolen mill are all marked by x's on the outer bend of the Iowa River. The rail line is also clearly marked going through the properties of Isaac Dennis, Gil Folsom, & S. Sharplens.

Those familiar with the history of Coralville may recognize some of the names of the property owners: Ezekiel Clark, Joseph Hemphill, Isaac Dennis, and Samuel J. Kirkwood, in particular.

The text at the bottom of the map states, "Coralville area-1870."
