Mappy Monday: Ohio Historical Maps
It's Monday - so it must be map day! The Ohio State University Library has a research page designed to make our search much easier. They've combined library and online resources into one page, creating a list of some great research suggestions. I decided to follow a few of them through to the final website. Explore Ohio, run by the Ohio Public Libraries Information Network, is deceptively simple looking. They've brought to together historic maps from throughout Ohio. Some cover large areas; others only address villages. All together, they allow you to paint a picture of the state. RailsandTrails.com even allows you to look at railroads. Have fun!
