Thank you!

Attorney David P. Hawley generously provided access to this set of historic maps. All 70+ pages were photographed, processed and assembled into an accessible online presentation.

Digitization Process

Plat books are large, and often in fragile condition. Each page represents one-half of the plat. All were photographed with a Sony a7 III, full-frame digital camera.

Each image was corrected and aligned in PhotoShop to create accurate representations of the full maps.
