Mappy Monday: Historic Maps of Iowa
I just went hunting for another round of historic maps, this time for Dubuque County (where Cascade is located). I turned up a gold-mine on the University of Alabama's Department of Geography website. They've provided digital images of maps dating from 1845 through the 1970s. The earliest show the state when it was still a territory. Many of the later maps are geological survey maps. Each can teach you more about Cascade, as well as the rest of Iowa.
