Webb’s Pensacola Directory


Transcribed and contributed by Janet Myers

Pensacola is divided into sections known more or less generally by the names of Old City, New City, East and West, King Tracts, Dallas Tract, Maxent Tract, Belmont Tract, Donelson Tract, and Carpent Tract. In New City, the streets commence at 1st street and continue up to 30th street, and from 6th avenue up to 20th avenue. The boundaries of the city commence on the west at Bayou Chico and extend along the harbor front to Bayou Texar. Following are the names of streets on which houses are located. It has been thought best not to give the names of those streets which only have an existence on the maps and which are not even laid out and graded.
