I was looking at Old Austin Maps and Old UT Campus Maps.

Some of the terms today make you chuckle.

Austin, Texas Maps - Perry-Castañeda Map Collection - UT Library Online

Historical Campus Maps University of Texas at Austin - Perry-Castañeda Map Collection - UT Library Online


For instance some terms like "School for Deaf And Dumb"
Notice That "Confederate Home" was a land mark of a kind.

"School For Feeble Minded"
"Deaf Dumb and Dumb Institute"
"State Insane Hospital"
