Earle and James Sanborn Maps — 1920-1923


The Sanborn Maps were originally created for assessing fire insurance liability in urbanized areas in the United States. The maps include detailed information regarding town and building information in approximately 12,000 U.S. towns and cities from 1867 to 2007. Sanborn maps are truly amazing and are a primary research tool for anyone interested in the history of urban development in the US.  For hours of fun, click here to see the full collection of Sanborn Maps for Greenville County from the collection of the University of South Carolina
