Oak Park Farm

In the late 19th century prosperous farmers like Henry Coppock of Johnson County in eastern Kansas often paid to have elaborate engravings of their properties placed in county atlases. In this case, a map of the property with images of crops and animals accompanies the image the farm buildings and grounds. The map indicates that Coppock's farm was on two major roads and a rail line that linked him to the nearby urban hub of Kansas City.
