About this collection

The Historic Map File consists of maps collected by the Office of Surveyor General focusing on Georgia.  They include maps of the State of Georgia, Georgia towns, and of the southeastern United States, dating from the 1740s.  In addition to showing how Georgia has grown, the maps show how the state’s boundaries have changed over the years.

 

Many of the colony and state maps were taken from atlases; the atlas is identified when it is known.
