Where the heck is Rhodes, Nova Scotia

In the 1870’s and 1880’s there are several maps that show place names in the Valley, close to home, that just don’t exist anymore. I know this is not news, but it is interesting none-the-same.

I know map makers were notorious for copying other maker’s data and selling the product as their own, but still one has to wonder about Conquerall (gone), Gibbonville (Wilmot) and Rhodes (gone but was likely North Kingston)…

Keeps the imagination wandering!
