Retrospective Map of the Southern Fork
Portage/Charles Lee Farm area
circa 1812

A closer view of the Lee's Place area of the Map of Chicago in 1812. The map makes note of the tree grove; although at less of an extent than the 1821 Survey had found. The haystack area, where cattle was also grazed, is the present location of Bridgeport.
