The Map Collection at the Sandusky Library

Visitors to the Sandusky Library Archives Research Center in recent months may have noticed new map cabinets at the far end of the reading room. These cabinets, along with environmental monitoring devices (for temperature, humidity, and water leaks) for the archives storage room, were purchased with funds from a Preservation Assistance Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Recently we have completed transferring our oversize map and poster collections to these cabinets -- to allow for better storage of these items and to create more storage space for other materials in the storage room. The map collection, which includes early maps of Sandusky and the Sandusky Bay, among others, is available to researchers in the archives. See the Archives Librarian or any Reference Librarian for assistance.

The englarged copy of the Sandusky map is terrific! You can see the old Columbus and Sandusky "Plank Road" and follow the line of the
Mad River and Lake Erie Railroad
and see the Masonic emblem in the
middle of the city! Great article!
