Indian Hills
first-year print in good condition
For sale is the 1945 edition of the Indian Hills 7.5-minute map. This map would be ideal for historical reference or research, genealogy studies, collectors, would make a nice conversation piece, a gift for a history or map enthusiast, framing or display, or for anyone interested in the area.
The Indian Hills 7.5-minute map shows all roads, paths, towns, railroads, rivers, creeks, elevation contour lines, public land survey lines, county, state, and other administrative boundaries as they existed at the time of the survey. All known structures (houses, businesses, churches, schools, barns, cabins, etc) are also shown.
The Indian Hills map was field surveyed before aerial photography methods were widely used in map data gathering. It was drawn by cartographers based on plane table field survey information as well as information gathered from local residents in the area. It displays the remarkable abilities of early government map makers, who placed a strong emphasis on creating complete, accurate, and cartographically appealing maps.
This map is from the 7.5-minute series, the most detailed series that is widely available from the USGS. The 1945 Indian Hills map is a valuable historical record for the area. It contains some placenames and features that have been dropped from more recent maps.
