Texas Digital Sanborn® Maps (1867 – 1970)

Digital Sanborn Maps provide a wealth of information, such as building outline, size and shape, windows and doors, street and sidewalk widths, boundaries, and property numbers. Plans often include details on construction materials and building use; and also depict pipelines, railroads, wells, water mains, dumps, and other features likely to affect the property’s vulnerability to earthquake, fire, and flood. The Sanborn maps provide an unparalleled picture of historic life in American towns and cities.
