Mappy Monday: Iowa DOT Historic Maps

   Turns out everyone in Iowa is getting into historic maps! The Iowa Department of Transportation has made historic maps available on their website. Most are highway maps, which were mass produced after 1910s. However, they've also included a county map from 1914, another from 1986, and a railroad map from the 1850s. This is a great way to pinpoint where your ancestor lived, down to the street level.
