Just seen this thread, I havent tried or even checked that sote out that was posted but ive been looking up some of the Sanborn maps. These were used for fire insurance of cities. I e found some that go back to the 1800s. Not sure how many towns/cities are there but it might be worth a look. Hope ot helps someone.

Regarding the pink squares on the map. If I recall that was a an indicator for new buildings since the previous version of the map was published.

Here is the link to the site all you do is search the town then when you click on the map it will ask you to open or save the PDF file. It will allow you to zoom in and also print sections of the map that you want.

Thanks for the link. There's too much information to digest without a lot of looking but this link made my visit to the forum today really worthwhile. Hopefully, I can find the map of Dupont, WA. covering the 1890's I've been searching for.

I'd love an old topo map of Davidson County, TN. I have one from 1871, 1880, 1901, and 1929. The oldest aerial I could find is dated 1950.

This may have already been posted but I'll post it anyway. The atlas's are of counties and then broken down into the towns of that county showing the homes and business locations.

http://www.bing.com/images/search?q=...tlas&FORM=IGRE


You can get them on a CD, this is where I got mine a few years ago.
I have no idea what they have in stock.

Hope this helps you out on your research.

Good luck

Cool Sanborn Maps

Google search for Sanborn Maps. These are fire insurance maps for a lot of towns and cities. Shows where all the buildings were back to 1900 and earlier. Might be one for a place near you.
