Historical maps reveal 1900 Fourth Street may not be a Shellmound site – Daily Californian

A historical map has revealed that 1900 Fourth Street may not actually be a Shellmound site. The information gleaned about the history of the site makes this place a topic of debate for people. The area was apparently under water and is not a good place to build things. The map that revealed this dates back to the mid 1800’s.

Key Takeaways:

  • A set of maps from the United States Geological Survey website has sparked debate about the development of affordable housing.
  • The maps were referenced in the Draft Environmental Impact Report when it was first published.
  • For the developers, it might just be a piece of land, Gould said. But for us, it is a place where we pray and honor.
