The earliest known map of the Village of Tampa wasn't the only find in a recent discovery of official City of Tampa papers at a house in Ozona.

A map of Oaklawn Cemetery was tucked in among the 300 documents that were donated to the Tampa Bay History Center by Sandra Walker, William and Peggy Mullen.
