Arizona Historical Maps

Out exploring Arizona? Here are a few awesome resources I've found that you can use. The first are two very old maps, one from 1881, the other from the 1860s (I believe).

The second is a link to a bunch of old Arizona Topo maps from the late 1800s to the mid 1900s. These are incredible. I have spent hours looking at these maps and have found some places I never knew existed. I think this has been my best find of the summer.

Arizona 1881 Map

These are two very cool maps from the 1800s that were sent to me by a friend. The first one is from 1881 and is extremely detailed. I enjoy seeing how things have changed from back then. These second was sent to me as a "Wagon Trail Map". I believe it was from the 1860s, but not sure on this. It's interesting to see how much Arizona grew (not in size) from the 1860s to the 1880s. Huge!
