Lodi, Wilson County, Texas

LODI WILSON COUNTY TEXAS ... has a very unique and interesting flare to it. Back in the 1850's, it was a thriving multi-cultural mecca. It had Germans, Mexicans, Irish, and other nationalities living and having businesses there. 
This map shows the prominent points of interest. Bentio Lopez's store which served a school. Location of where the court house was. Lodi served as county seat two terms as did Sutherland Springs before both lost it to Floresville. 
The map shows the blacksmith's shop, Washington Plaza (social dance and party place), where the post office was, along with other notable places. I find this map very interesting and am happy to have it since all this has been lost to time.  {shared by Mark Cameron, Wilson County Historian}
