For researchers using the 1860 census, we are posting images from the 1861 Topographical Map of Centre Co. Pennsylvania from Actual Surveys under the direction of H. F. Walling Published by S. D. Tilden which is located in the Map Room of the Library of Congress. Another copy of this map is also posted online by Penn State University . The map in the Library of Congress was in poor shape in a number of places and we had to piece it together. In cases where our images may be deficient, go to the Penn State site. Navigation of this excellent map on this site is a bit tricky, but you can also access each township or borough independently. Additionally, Penn State University has also posted the 1874 Pomeroy Atlas of Centre County, Pennsylvania.
Below that, we are posting illustrations from the 1883 History of Centre and Clinton Counties by John Blair Linn. They may be opened by clicking on your choice of map and then enlarged by clicking on the images. They may also be saved to your computer by right-clicking and selecting "Save Image As..."
