This map would be ideal for framing or display, historical reference or research, genealogy studies, adding to your collection, treasure hunting, a nice conversation piece, a gift for a history or map enthusiast, or for anyone interested in this area. This sheet includes the only survey produced by the United States Geological Survey for the Carthage 15-minute quadrangle. The map is an original 1904 USGS print. This rare 115-year-old-year-old sheet is a first-year printing and is in excellent condition. The Carthage 15-minute map shows all roads, paths, towns, railroads, rivers, creeks, elevation contour lines, public land survey lines, county, state, and other administrative boundaries as they existed at the time of the survey in 1902. All known structures (houses, businesses, churches, schools, barns, cabins, etc) are also shown, with exceptions in some urban areas, where only landmark buildings may be shown. The Carthage map was field surveyed before aerial photography methods were widely used in map data gathering. It was drawn by cartographers based on plane table field survey information as well as information gathered from local residents in the area. It displays the remarkable abilities of early government map makers, who placed a strong emphasis on creating complete, accurate, and cartographically appealing maps. Maps from the 15-minute series for the continental United States are no longer produced or printed by the USGS and original prints are becoming increasingly difficult to find. They are a valuable historical record for an area, as they contain many placenames and features that have been dropped from more recent maps.
