Any maps for New York State?

Any maps for Steuben County of New York State? And to be more precise, I am especially looking for the Wheeler township area of Steuben County. Am most interested in old maps that show where houses once stood. Am trying to locate some old locations of homes in the area. Thanks for any help or suggestions.:garrett:

Hi Krista
I would check this 1873 map with homesites.
http://www.historicmapworks.com/Map/US/3488/Wheeler/

Or if you like,check out the entire 1873 Steuben atlas here
http://www.historicmapworks.com/Atlas/US/715/Steuben+County+1873/

To zoom in really close you may have to create an account on historicmapworks. It is free though. I was just using one of the maps I printed out from their site this weekend while detecting.


this map is nice also but not as detailed

Hi Siz
Good luck with getting permission. I love these old map sites... My Killmer side of the family has been in Dutchess for hundreds of years so it is interesting to see the name as a landowner way back then.
