Catalog Number MAP-M.1.5
Object Name map
Scope & Content blueprint, map

REMARKS:Incomplete set of map sheets, apparently for railroad through Douglas County. Front and back pages are missing; existing pages are numbered from 500 to 623.; The map follows a transportation route through Douglas County from the Josephine County to the Lane County lines. Since it shows locations for whistle posts, and since it also shows roads intersecting the central feature, the map is apparently the map of a railroad route. There is no indication of the time of drawing. Although some lands are shown as "O&C", the map does not indicate whether the rail route is for the Oregon & California or its successor, the Southern Pacific.; Donation land claims are noted where they occur, along with other property ownership information for real estate in the right-of-way.
