ill titleHistory

During the 1820's, brothers Bradford and Moses King from Connecticut entered into a partnership with Obediah W. Bush to purchase the land that became the Bush and King Tract. An 1832 survey map shows the early layout of this tract. The Bush and King Tract, bounded by Canal and New York Street,*(now Jefferson Ave), was located within the boundaries of the newly chartered city in an area still largely undeveloped. Three major transportation routes would border the tract in its northern and eastern sides by the end if the 1830's, greatly influencing the development of the area in the nineteenth century.

ill_1Much of this history still survives today. Visitors can see a nearly complete 19th century neigborhood displaying many different architechture styles.
