Pictured below are
four old maps of West Street. The oldest detailed map of this
area (with names) appears to be the 1856 map (left) from the
Walling county map. The Beers Atlas 1873 map (right) show many
of the same names, but also a major change - the soon to be
railroad. The 1856 map was succeeded by the 1860 map (same
author - H.F. Walling)
Question for viewers: Are there other detailed of old West Street?
West Street - 1856 (above)
Below - 1860
West Street 1873
Below - 1830
The oldest map, the 1830 map (right) shows us that the old road
to Northampton was Cemetery Road., and that West Street was
first called "First Street".
