Here's Bluffton in 1880

If you've ever wondered what the layout of Bluffton was like in 1880, here's the answer. In two different pieces are portions of a Bluffton plat map from that year.

You'll notice several interesting things:
• College Avenue is called Blanchard Avenue
• Lawn Avenue is called Mill Street
• There's no bridge over Riley Creek at Jefferson Street

There's lots more and we'll let you discover it by examining the map.
