Cowford Steampunk Society Wiki


Originally, cattle were driven up to the crook in the river, where it narrowed enough for them to swim across, so they could be taken north to market. So naturally, the village/town/city that grew at that point was called Cowford, as in the place the cows ford the river. After Andrew Jackson's exploits in the war of 1812, and being the Military Governor of Florida after the Spanish ceded it in 1821, the name of the city was changed to Jacksonville in his honor.

Since we wanted a distinct town from Jacksonville, but to still play "At Home", we just adopted the original name as our steam-punk town.

Cowford has the advantages of being historically relevant (it really was the name at one point in the general time frame of steam-punk) and having that slightly funky sound that says things may not be quiet as normal as you'd expect.
