Exclusive:Hand Drawn Map Of Three Tree Point Discovered
Fred Freitag, current owner of what was once the Three Tree Point Store, discovered a very interesting and historic hand-drawn map of the area in the basement of his house, which he has exclusively shared with the B-Town Blog.
It appears that the “Authoritative, accurate and comprehensive map of Three Tree Point and its immediate environs” was drawn by store owner Vi Sparks on Oct. 6, 1974, with “slight assistance” from Bill and Jeanne Sparks.
Some of our favorite elements of this map:
- Some very cute drawings of ships, airplanes, cars, fish, birds, dogs, houses and even a donkey pulling a cart labeled “What is it??“!
- “Scale: 1 = an unknown number of feet!” scribbled at the bottom as a key
- Humorous 1970s-era Smiley Face drawn in some blank space near the center
