The Illustrated Historical Atlas of the State of Minnesota (abridged on CD) is now available:
This abridged digital version of the Illustrated Historical Atlas of the State of Minnesota consists of 19th century cartographic data including all of the 1874 Minnesota counties and 49 city and village plats from this period.
Individual county maps are useful for identifying 1874 transportation routes, railroads, canals, streams and rivers, cities, towns and villages, and early Minnesota place names. One-room schools, churches, cemeteries and other cultural features are also included in the county maps.
The city and village plat maps in the Minnesota Atlas are often more detailed with many early property owners identified; industrial sites including a variety of stores, factories and mills; State and local government sites: cemeteries, churches, schools, fair grounds, race tracks, asylum & hospitals; and much more.
The high resolution digital map data is presented in Adobe Portable Document Format (PDF). and the Adobe Acrobat Reader is included on each CD.
Other recent additions to the Historic Atlas Series include the states of Iowa and Wisconsin. Pennsylvania, Kentucky and Missouri CD's are planned for the near future.
