City of Evansville Plat

1818 City of Evansville Platt

In the process of doing some inventory work the past couple of weeks we came across this record book that contained the plat for the City of Evansville circa 1818. A plat is  is a map showing the divisions of a piece of land. We aren’t sure if this was an official book or perhaps someone’s informal notes.  It has also been suggested that this book may have belonged to a title company that worked out of the Court House in the late 1800s.

Do recognize the names of those downtown streets?
