Walnut Hills History Via Maps

I was recently doing some research in the Walnut Hills area, around the former Lane Seminary grounds. I thought my readers might find the map comparison interesting.

Old maps are especially helpful since they help identify former street names. I made a key to keep track of old/new names for future reference. Happy digging!
