About County Atlases
With the industrialization of the east coast and western migration to settle America's heartland, county atlases became very popular in the latter half of the 19th and early 20th century. These atlases showed property ownership, which usually included the individual's name and often the footprint of their house. To create further appeal to individuals, the publishers of these county atlases would include artistic renderings of homes, businesses, and civic buildings. Today, not only are these county atlases aesthetically pleasing, but they are an important source of information for historians and genealogists. County atlases show the development of communities in new streets, railroads, the realignment of waterways, and the trend from residential to commercial districts.
