Historic Maps

First Edition 1:10560 County Series maps (dated between 1846 and 1899) navigatable using a County Name Gazetteer. Selecting a county presents the user with a gazetteer of towns and villages in that county. The counties are named as they existed around 1850. However the gazetteer contains over 40000 placenames as they exist today. Since the map sheets are larger than the viewable area on your screen, you will need to pan around the sheet using your browser scrollbars in order to see the entire map.
