Waco, Texas, county seat of McLennan Cy. 1886. Beck & Pauli, litho.

Historic map of Waco, TX, published in 1886. The county seat of McLennon County, with the population stated to be 16,000 at the time this map was drawn. Named for the Native American tribe that once had their village on the site that is now the town of Waco. The map shows a clear view of the Waco Suspension Bridge, which was completed in 1870 and was the longest span west of the Mississippi at that time. The bridge gave the town a major economic boost, allowing immigrants safe passage and attracting cattle runs from the Chisholm Trail. Today the bridge is for pedestrian use only and is in the National Register of Historic Places. The map captures the town as it appeared just one year after the invention of Dr. Pepper in Waco. The "Castles & Morrison, Old Corner Drugstore", where it was invented, is referenced on the map. The Waco Female College is also referenced, which was later occupied by the first Texas Christian University.

Inset illustrations on left and right lower corner show the South and North ends of the town.
