Agency History
The 12th Survey District covered the 24th Ward, south of Market Street (later the 27th and 40th Wards) from 1854 to 1917. In 1917, part of the 40th Ward, south of Woodland and Warrington Avenues, was taken to create a new 7th District. The 12th Survey District was abolished in 1932 and the territory became part of the 7th Survey District.
