Topographic Maps

 

The old topographic maps provide two valuable types of information for which you can request a lookup: 

  1. Locations of long-gone schools   If you have the name and need the precise location, just give me an approximate location like the name of the closest town.  If you can describe the precise location of ruins, I can usually find the name of the school. (These are online, if the link below is clickable).
  2. Locations of the homesteaders' dwellings.  If you can supply the land description (quarter, section, township & range) I can give you the approximate distance of each dwelling from the nearest section lines.
