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 . . .
