The UT Map Library holds a collection of 15 minute (1:62,500) and 30 minute (1:125,000) historical (1882-1940) USGS maps. These maps can provide an excellent view of the changes that have occurred in the cultural landscape. The coverage of these maps varies from state to state. To assist patrons in locating historical 30 minute and 15 minute topographic maps of Tennessee, we have created web pages with index maps that show the coverage that we have of these maps (see below). To locate 30 minute and 15 minute USGS maps for other states please use Riley Moffat's book Map index to topographic quadrangles of the United States, 1882-1940 (held at Map Library Reference, Call Number: 234124 2)
