Providence Forge 1914

A fascinating (well, to me at least) plat I discovered in the Virginia Chancery Index. From the 1914 case of Providence Forge Fish and Hunt Club v. George Potts, Etc., it gives a great view of turn of the century Providence Forge. I say "great" in the sense of interesting, in actuality the paper condition does make it a little difficult to distinguish some details.



 . . . to make it a little clearer, I've picked out a few landmarks . . . first here we have the Old Hotel by the railroad tracks . . .



 . . .then Providence Presbyterian Church . . .


. . . and finally the Train Depot . . .


Now zoomed in . . .
