Throwback Thursday and Disney trivia. Walt had planned a couple changes in the late 50s. He planned on opening a new area called Liberty Street. It would feature colonial arts, Griffins Wharf (the supposed site of Boston tea party) Paul Revere's (edit. Thanks Plumie) Silver shoppe the liberty tree a hall of the declaration of independence and hall of presidents. It was tentatively planned for years and even showed up on some park maps into the 60s. It I'd on my park map from 1964. There was also going to be Edison square, sponsored by GE, with a life size Thomas Edison and a version of what became the carousel of progress. Edison square is also shown on the map though never done. Forgive the condition... It's 50 years old and fun to look at.
Most of the ideas were incorporated in Liberty Square in WDW. - BaseballMickey_CM

*Revere. You can still get a copy of this map in the art on demand at the gallery as you enter DL park. A site called red bubble.com makes phone cases with a couple of detail choices. - Plumiegirl
