1896 Map of Area of Lake Maxinkuckee  



This map shows the Indian trails in and around the lake - This map gives the dates for name change of Culver, The first settlers, Indian Villages, sites of the chiefs homes among other things. This map also shows the shows the Academy ground, the Lake View Hotel grounds - and is a major asset to this site - one location is pin pointed is the "Roost" or Conzelman cottage on the north side; as well as it shows the buildings of the Arlington Hotel again.



This looks like the map that was in the Lake Maxinkuckee: A Physical and Biological Survey 2 vols. (1920, Indianapolis Department of Conservation) Dr. Burton W. Evermann and H. W. Clark.


This map also appears in: An Early History of Lake Maxinkuckee (1905, Levey Bros. & Co. Indianapolis) Daniel Mc Donald, Maxinkuckee Lake Assoc.

When comparing the 1896-after, the topographical and the Everman's Survey map of 1900 the all bear the same exact landmarks - some detailing may be left out in one - more detailing in another - or different emphasis is placed on detailing.

The book was offered on Ebay not to long ago and it said in the description there was a a map or set of maps attached in a packet or inside the back cover. This is the map and the map is very large


The copy of the map for the everman is from a small photo enlarge and details are lost plus it was dark. but the details tho unable to compare fully between the two look about the same - till a clear larger version of the Everman map comes to light - one can only guess - but all three seem to bear a striking likness to each other but with different details about the lake set out on them. The Everman one gives the outline and the depth in feet and names the holes and loafs.


The 1900 topographical map which also looks similar to this and could of been done in conjunction with the Pysical and Biological Survey shows the depth areas in black and grey instead of being outlined and with numbers.
