Historical Texas County Highway Maps

These are general highway maps showing major state and county roads, streams and rivers, towns, and other landmarks. They were produced for each county by the Texas State Highway Department and successor agencies. The earliest maps did not employ aerial and satellite photography and are somewhat inaccurate. They will not sync up exactly with today's 1:24000 scale USGS maps or aerial photography and in some instances are several miles off.

Current Topographical Maps (2012-1013) with Aerial Photography

These are current topographic maps showing roads, towns, and rivers, and other features at a scale of 1:24000. They were produced by the United States Geological Survey between 2012 and 2013. Each map is in PDF format with geospatial extensions (GeoPDF®) and contains layers of geographic data which can be turned on and off: orthoimagery (aerial photography), transportation, geographic names, topographic contours, boundaries, hydrography, structures, and woodlands. These are very accurate maps. The GeoPDF extensions allow additional functionality when the free toolbar from TerraGo is installed in Adobe Acrobat Reader. For example, latitude and longitude can be determined by holding the cursor over any point on the map.

Historical Texas General Land Office Maps

These are land survey maps showing the location of original land surveys conducted during the land grant process. Under the land grant process, a prospective settler could receive a certificate for a specified amount of land under a variety of programs, each with different qualifications. Once the certificate was issued, the settler would locate available land from within the public domain. Using the certificate, the settler would have the desired land surveyed. The certificate and field notes (a written description of the survey) were then sent to the General Land Office and filed. Maps were produced for each county by draftsmen within the General Land Office using the surveys that were submitted. These maps were periodically updated to add new surveys as they were conducted. The maps are amazingly accurate considering the lack of landmarks that existed at the time. The last map in Bosque County was produced April 9, 1945.

Historical Texas General Land Office Maps (adjacent counties)

These are links to land survey maps showing the location of original land surveys in adjacent counties. Some of the links are to maps on the Portal of Texas History website. Others are links to maps on the General Land Office website. If the link is to a map on the Portal of Texas History website, navigation of the map is pretty straightforward and intuitive. If the link to a map is on the General Land Office website, it is a bit more cumbersome. You will need to click the "Zoom to see detail!" link just below the map to open a new zoomable window. Then, click on the "Toggle Full Page View" icon at the far right of the -/+ zoom slider that is at the bottom of the map image. After that, you should be able to use the navigation icons at the bottom of the map.
