[Chadwyck-Healey] These digitized maps provide detailed property and land-use records that depicts the architecture of more than 12,000 U.S. towns and cities throughout the past one hundred years. The maps enable researchers to trace the architectural history of individual buildings or entire communities. One can see everything from building outline, size and shape, construction materials, height, building use, windows and doors, street and sidewalk widths, boundaries, house numbers, and more. Symbols for stables, garages, warehouses, and other commercial sites are also included. Factories are often labeled with the owner's name, as well as the products manufactured there. Also depicted are pipelines, railroads, wells, water mains, and dumps. Search for the maps by typing in the state or community. Each map's index helps locate streets, landmarks, and other places of historical interest. Once displayed, the maps can be manipulated, expanded, printed, and downloaded.
