Historical T-Sheets

Historical T-Sheets are shoreline maps that were created in the late 1800 to early 1900s for major waterways and coastal areas of the United States. The T-Sheets contain information such as locations of buildings, names of shoreline features, and detailed descriptions of shorelines.

This collection contains over 250 maps covering the following locations:

  • Puget Sound, Washington
  • Hawaiian Islands of Oahu, Maui and Kauai
  • Mississippi coast line
  • Everglades area, Florida
  • San Francisco Bay, California

These maps typically range in size between 1 and 5 megabytes. However, there are a few that are over 15 megabytes. These might take a few minutes to load, depending on the speed of your Internet connection. While they are loading, it will appear that nothing is happening. Just be patient and they will eventually load.

If you know of any other sources of online historical T-Sheets, please post a comment and I’ll add them to the collection.
