Old Maps of New York Towns Online

Digital Topo Maps Free.

Our friend Bill Hecht, the consummate map and documents poster, just informed us of a link to the University of New Hampshire Digital Map Collection that has an excellent collection of the older USGS Topographical Maps.

When you compare these maps to some of the current ones that are available online from the USGS / GNIS Tiger system you will see variances in roads, landmarks and buildings as they have changed with the times.

Here is the link to the UNH Digital Maps of New York.


Thanks Bill, as always.
