A Map of North Carolina from Rand-McNally's 1895 Atlas
The 1895 state maps from were scanned from an old Rand McNally Atlas, called: "The New 11 x 14 Atlas of the World." This atlas, originally printed in 1895, was scanned by Ray Sterner. These maps are very detailed and were very difficult to read. Railroads were a dominant means of transportation, they are shown on the maps instead of roads.
