Bullitt County - Geographic Positions in 1904

The following geographic positions were determined by primary traverse run in 1904 by J. R. Ellis. The line starts from the Louisville Blind Asylum, a triangulation station of the United States Coast and Geodetic Survey, and runs southward on the Louisville and Nashville Railroad to Shepherdsville, thence eastward via highways to Mount Washington, thence northward via highways to Anchorage, thence westward over the Louisville and Nashville Railroad to the starting point at Louisville. A line was also run from Mount Washington southeast to Smithville and return. A spur line was run over highways from Shepherdsville west via Capio to West Point; also one from Anchorage northeast over the Louisville and Nashville Railroad to Beard, and thence northward along highways via Brownsboro and Skylight to Westport. We have added to the map below those related to Bullitt County, or nearby.
