This is a map I bought from Ebay. Before I frame it, I scanned it so that we can all examine it in detail. I scanned it in six different sections and stitched it together in Microsoft Image Composite Editor (ICE). Derek Monroe found the date for this map: “That’s a page from the 1924 Racine and Kenosha Plat book.http://digicoll.library.wisc.edu/cgi-bin/WI/WI-idx…”
Careful — this links to a full-resolution 19 megabyte JPG: City of Racine Map Section 3
John Buppa says: Todd, that whole section on the lower left including the 5 large lots and the lower section, as far South as Durand I think, were known as the Pierce Farm. Joshua Pierce owned well over 150 acres there at one time. I believe the old Italianate style brick home at 2800 Taylor & Pierce may have been his homestead when he died. The 5 lots you see on that map were owned by his children; Rose Briggs, Anna Selden, Lafayette Pierce, William Pierce & Libby Coryell and Mrs Aaron (Francis) Wood. I’m guessing that’s how Pierce Woods came to be. Here’s Joshua’s obit from 21 Dec 1904.
