Description

1 map: col., 17 x 20 cm.<br>Plat map from the Whitman County city of Texas City Scale: 400'=1".<br>At one time the small community of Texas City was also known as Texas Ferry. Located on the Snake River, you can perhaps derive the town's economic interests from this name. It lay directly across the river from Riparia and eventually melded into it. Alkali Flat Creek runs through the town as well. There were a number of shipyards located along the town's Water Street. With shipyards and the coming of the Oregon Railway and Navigation Co., Texas City became important for trade and transportation capabilities. With completion of the Snake River Valley Railroad in 1907, Texas City also had a direct route to the Idaho border.
