As announced on the NC Miscellany blog, two Sanborn insurance maps have been added to the outstanding collection on NC Maps: 1895 and 1890!

Many thanks to each of you for voting to put our city online. Sanborn maps are incredibly useful for genealogists, businessowners and homeowners, history buffs, as well as architectural historians. Take a look at tobacco warehouses, homes,  schools, and other early development of Winston and Salem.

Also, be sure to check out the new overlay map section of NC Maps. There are two historic maps of Winston-Salem laid over a current Google map of Winston-Salem — check “Fade Historic Map” to make the map transparent!
