Trout Creek in Truckee

From: "Denny Dickinson"

I am a serious historical researcher doing research on Trout Creek in Truckee, California through the Truckee Donner Historical Society (TDHS). ...

The Central Pacific Railroad Photographic History Museum has published a CPRR Survey Map 1868, Nevada County, CA. I believe that the 1889 USGS map is in error showing Trout Creek flowing in southerly direction into the Truckee River around what is now the Bridge Street Bridge. This map may show the true direction of Trout Creek in 1886. Would it be possible to get the present day location of this map for my review. ...

PS - The TDSH library is open every Thur. 10-2. I would like to invite anyone interested in Truckee history to stop by for a visit.
