I'm in New Mexico, but here are a couple of ideas.
My local library had a few. Ask the reference librarian.
I made an appointment with the historian at a local museum and took a lot of notes (too cheap to pay the $40/hour they wanted for making copies!)
The Library of Congress has some online HERE . They were going to digitize them all, but the company that bought the Sanborns got greedy. :confused:
Speaking of whom, I'm sure you've seen THEIR SITE...(Historic Map Works)
Some Universities have collections, unfortunately the NM ones are up in Albuquerque, about 4 hours north of me, but you may have better luck.

Hope it helps!
