Sanborn maps was made up by a Fire Insurance Company way back when. There all old , show building that are no longer there. Show water lines and even Poop Houses. If your a Detector kind of person other then gold , there a Gold Mine of Information.

Out houses are a Collection of all sort of stuff from Bottles, Coins even wallets. You never know. I have the Series of maps for here in Deming that get me back almost to Camp Cody. Wish they had that one.

Here are the first two pages.

Sanborn maps are a great resource for finding where the old dwelling/building/parks, etc. were!!!

Here's a link to Sanborn website and their Fire Insurance Maps, also a link to the Library Of Congress" collection of Sanborn Maps

http://www.loc.gov/collection/sanborn-maps/

Also check with public libraries and Universities libraries in your state/city, many of them have Sanborn Fire Insurance Maps for that respective city/state.
