Hocker Grove Plat Map
Plat map illustrating available lots for development in the Hocker Grove subdivision in Merriam, Kansas, circa 1915. The subdivision, between 55th Street on the north and Johnson Drive (then Main Street) on the south, was located west of Turkey Creek and developed by Richard W. Hocker. The map illustrates the route of the Kansas City, Lawrence & Topeka Electric Railroad running largely east to west through the development, roughly parallel to Hocker Avenue. A note below the map reads "These Streets or Trails, 'Blackhoof,' 'Perry,' 'Tucker,' and 'Bluejacket,' were named for Indian Chiefs of the Shawnee Tribe."
