Historical County Maps

Historical county maps are of particular interest to genealogists and historians. Why? They are often “landowner” maps, covered with the names of individuals who owned land. Some antique maps were even created by “subscription” — landowners, farmers, and merchants paid to have their properties and names appear on the maps!

Many old county maps were drawn in the period 1860-1880. These elaborate Victorian-era county maps are best known for their impressively intricate illustrations of local scenes. They represent each county's coming of age, when it became possible to produce such extravagant documentation. Some show public places, including cemeteries, courthouses, and city halls.
