    Default More rare maps

    GLO MAPS
    In the 1800s and into the 1900s, surveyors were busy establishing section corners throughout the US. I am happy to say that when they encountered a homested, they noted them in their records. I have spent several years wandering around Cochise County somewhat randomly locating these old ranches. I did not know of these maps until recently. What a revelation. I have not seen these mentioned on this site before and frankly, There are several places to find these maps, but I prefer the BLM site listed below. As you use the site, there is a drop down box with "homested plat" or some such title. That is what you want to access. I have been to several of these homesteads and I can tell you it is a lot of fun to go and find the ruins of them old places. I have seen several notable ruins with interesting artifacts strewn about. Just remember to leave them so everone can enjoy them.
