Mapping Orange County: Land Grants, Early Travel Routes, and the Native Trading Path. A Talk by Mark Chilton
Mark Chilton’s work on mapping the original land grants of Orange County will show where important early figures in county history lived, how people traveled by road, ferry, ford, and bridge, and where the great Native Trading Path was. Starting with the work of Allen Markham of some fifty years ago, Chilton has broadened Markham’s perspective on the Orange County historical record.
