Title Northwest Orange County
Scope & Content This item is an 1885 map of an area just south of Big Fish Lake (now Shadow Lake) and Buck (?) Lake (now Harvest Lake). The map is grided along township and range lines. One road and one trail that ran through the area are shown. Swamps, ponds, and thickets are shown. Slight land elevations are shown. A proposed ditch between Big Fish Lake and the road is shown. The location of stakes used in the surveying process are shown. The map appears to have been hand drawn in black on a white vinyl-based (?) surface. Areas on the back have been colored blue and red to show through to the surface. The blue corresponds to the lake shores and the red corresponds to four (4) of the gridded areas on the front. Road runs between Apopka and Maitland.
