Description
In 2004, the University of Iowa Libraries Map Collection completed the digitization of the 202 maps and photographic plates comprising the 1904 Huebinger Atlas of the State of Iowa, complete with zoom and pan capability. Following this, the department answered the demand for access to historical county atlases by selecting pre-1923 atlases from its collection for digitization. Now almost half the counties in the state of Iowa are represented by this collection of digital county landownership atlases. In addition, the State Historical Society of Iowa has begun to digitize their extensive collection of Iowa county atlases and load them onto this site.
