07/12/08 72 W, 1 I - + 7 - 14 Wake County Map, 1887

Random historical artifact, a Wake County Map from 1887. Three sizes, scanned from photo copy. Quite a few familiar names on roads, creeks, and communities! The only fire department in the county at that time was the volunteer Raleigh Fire Department. The city's fire equipment could be transported by rail car, for assistance outside Raleigh. Such as in 1885 (Fayetteville), 1895 (Durham), and 1908 (Cary).
