The Maps

The next page is going to give you a choice of six different maps of the Northern Kentucky area.

All are old Rail Road maps; all are from the 19th century.  All are just the Northern Kentucky portions of a larger map.

You'll see a lot of town names you've never heard of before.

THESE IMAGE FILES ARE LARGE, and will take some time to load.  They will probably be bigger than your screen, so you'll have to use those sliding bars at the right and bottom of your screen.

To see these Northern Kentucky maps,  Go Here

If you want to see the complete images, (that is, the  entire map, not just the Northern Kentucky part, and in  better resolution than I've reproduced here),  you want to go to:

It's the Library of Congress site, and you can find them by searching on maps for Kentucky at that site. 

The O. F. Stone Baking Company of Cincinnati, published  a map of Kenton County for Centennial Week in 1914.  It's  nice, but will take several moments to load. It's here.
The mother of all Kentucky maps is the one John Filson drew in 1793.   The upper half of it is here.
Contemporary maps of all Kentucky Counties can be seen here.

For THE really great site for Kentucky maps, I highly
recommend the David Rumsey collection.  Check it out here:

  Last and not at all least is Old Maps Online.  It covers the entire country, but there's some great stuff here.
