Plats of Margaret Place over the years
Four major plats of the area in and around the current Margaret Place are of interest. All can be found in any Margaret Place home or property abstract.
Long before Margaret and Allen Perkins purchased and lived here, the property was within what was known as the Sallier Subdivision.
This is the plat of the Perkins Homestead
Sanborn Map: Debakey to Pithon, Griffith Coulee to Wilson
According to the 1914 Sanborn Maps (courtesy of McNeese State University Archives Department), there were only 7 houses in the 2 block area from South Ryan (Now Dr. Michael DeBakey Drive) to the North side of Pithon and from the Griffith Coulee to the opposite side of Wilson (then known as "Allen" Avenue).
