Flowers left for Isaiah Hart
Isaiah was one of the principal landowners in this area, originated the idea of surveying the town and is credited with being Jacksonville's founder. In June 1822, surveying of a twenty block town began because of Hart's insistence. He also convinced other landowners to donate streets for the city plan. By the end of the survey, five east-west streets and four north-west streets had been laid out.
