4 Atlases

Atlases published about the time of construction can be useful research tools. Many older editions show the location of individual dwellings and other buildings, and most indicate the materials used in their construction – wood, stone, brick, or iron. Older atlases include the Sanborn Insurance maps, the Hopkins Company editions, as well as those published by Foote or Rascher.

These atlases are available at the Minnesota Historical Society, the Special Collections Department of the Minneapolis Public Library, and the St. Paul Public Library. They do not circulate and must be used in those libraries.
