I have been having great success combining the powers of
http://www.historicaerials.com/ for aerial photo overlays
http://chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/ for old newspaper tips
http://wikimapia.org/ for some often unique info

and of course the county tax assessor website and google earth/street view

For many years my wife, and I, lived in Bellevue, TN and each day we came home our exit was to the left and to the right was to Newsom's Station but we never could find the blasted place. Well, my wife suddenly passed away Feb 7, 2013 without ever knowing where it was, and we did look a few times, and she would say it must be one of those one sign towns.

Long story short your links had a link to Ghost Towns and it had it listed so now I know what, and where exactly, it was. Sad that she wasn't here to know with me.

By the way under Abandoned Buildings the second link to http://www.abandonedbutnotforgotten.com/ is a dead link now as the site is up for sale.

Thanks Okie, and the others who have posted links here. The best one for drive in theaters is http://www.drive-ins.com/

The list there is up to date, and I have found one that opened in 1950 and closed in the early 2000's that isnt too far away. I verified the location on google maps. The screen and out buildings are gone, but you can see the tell tale semicircles of the parking area. C'mon springtime!

Default Some Additional Sources

I will add a few links I use for work that I have not seen posted previously:

Near-Surface Soil Types:
http://websoilsurvey.sc.egov.usda.go...oilSurvey.aspx - Very useful for trying to determine the type of soil in certain areas to be aware of high gravel/cobble content, clay, etc. Select an AOI (area of interest) for the area then you can play around with the upper tabs to see the soil map and types. In some areas I like to get a rough idea on mineralization by checking Soil Data Explorer tab -> Building Site Development -> Corrosion of Concrete. High risk means high sulfate (and likely high iron content)

Historic Maps:
http://www.davidrumsey.com/ - Large map collection of historic plans including civil war battle sites. Major cities are already overlaid on Google Earth. I find most maps not already overlaid by going through the LUNA Browser and doing a search for the town or county at the top of the screen.

http://historical.mytopo.com/ - Historic topographic quadrangle maps for the Northeast United States. Can search by Town or the Image Map.

I really enjoy Ward Maps LLC

I have spent many an hour perusing the maps of cities in my area.
