SCOTTSBORO, MAYSVILLE, LANGSTON, ALABAMA, 1885 TOPO MAP



The Maysville and Ryland Alabama Area News is not affiliated in any manner with the eBay seller offering this map. We found this item while searching for articles to place on our site and feel it may be of value to anyone doing historical or genealogical research. The item is a reproduction. Below you will find the seller's description of the map:

This is an authentic 1885 survey (edition April 1892, reprinted 1925) U.S.G.S. Topographical Map reproduced in black and white and distributed by the Midcontinent Map Company until my father bought out their inventory back in the mid '80s. These maps are not available anywhere else! If you are a serious relic hunter these maps can be invaluable! Also shows individual buildings, roads, schools, railroads and the topography of the land at the time of the survey. Shows towns that no longer exist and the then current layout of all creeks and waterways. A great tool for locating ghost towns and Civil War campsites!
