Eastern Shore Information:
Counties in 1795

By Craig O'Donnell

My actual home page: The Cheap Pages

 


Each county map here is from the Dennis Griffith map of Maryland in the Library of Congress Map Collection... it's an amazing and beautiful piece of workmanship for its day.

The inline maps on each page are JPEGs approximately 250K in size. There is also a link to a second version of the same map. This second map is bigger when printed out and has also been only slightly compressed.

...it's probably a good idea to use your browser's "Download Link to Disk" command on this second link as these files are 1-2MB in size.
