Item Information

Title:
A map of the state of Ohio : from actual survey
Description:
America Transformed: Ohio, the 17th state, was the first carved out of the Northwest Territory. Survey grid patterns based on 5- and 6-mile square townships were first implemented here, in addition to traditional irregular metes and bounds surveys in the Virginia Military District. To administer surveying and sales, over a dozen private land companies, military land districts, and congressionally-authorized districts were created. By 1832 when this large wall map was updated, surveying had been completed. County boundaries and township perimeters are marked. The cartouche promotes agriculture and river transportation with a scene of a farm overlooking the Ohio River.
