Mappy Monday: Big Map Blog

While browsing around for maps online, I came across the Big Map Blog. Click here to read more about the Big Map Blog. You can browse all maps, or search by location. One of my favorite maps at this site is Ruger's Map of Sandusky, Ohio from 1870.

Use the zoom feature for a closer look of a specific portion of the map. In the close up view below, Number 7 is an image of Emmanuel Church, Number 6 is the Sandusky High School, and Number 13 is Grace Episcopal Church.

Check out the Big Map Blog, and you may find maps of interest from your family's hometown! Contact the curator of the Big Map Blog if you are interested in ordering prints of the maps found at this terrific website.
