This is an 1871 map of New Bedford depicting the main streets with less than perfect clarity and detail.
The map shows the general location of the Great Cedar Swamp
.You can see the small creek that emptied into Clark's Cove. It was named "Bedford Creek" and included a small pond north west of what is today the intersection of Cottage and Allen Streets.
It has been totally filled in since that time.
