Many Maps of Maine

Topographical maps are invaluable to anyone interested in the history and landscape of Maine—from genealogists to hunters and fishermen. Recent topo maps can be viewed online at TerraServer USA, but for older maps you'll have visit a major library, or else click over to Historic USGS Maps of New England & New York.

Maps of Maine dating from the 1890s through the 1950s can be selected by quadrangle, town name, or by clicking the relevant quad on an image of Maine (recommended for viewing unorganized townships). Multiple maps are available for most areas—Portland, for instance, was mapped in 1891, 1916, and 1957.
