1889 Plat Map
Index & Images

The 1889 Plat Map, in the collection of the Whitley County Historical Museum, consists of individual maps of the townships, approximately 11 x 14 inches each.

The township maps were scanned and indexed by BARBARA LACY. The images used on these pages are NOT proportionately scaled. Included in the index of approximately 4,000 entries is the name of the landowner, the number of acres owned, the township, and the section where the land is located. Also included in the index, but not on the original maps is the legal description (township and range numbers). Since the maps do not include landowners in the towns within the county, just those in rural areas, not everyone who owned land at this time is listed.

Each section map, in addition to the section for the listed landowner, includes the adjoining sections so you can see who the neighbors were. These are between 30-60kb and should load reasonably fast, even with a dial-up connection.

The full township maps are between 150-250kb so may take a while to load with a dial-up connection.
