Are there any good resources available for historical WV maps?

I live in the panhandle of WV, one of the oldest areas of the country, and I can't find anything useful in terms of historical maps for this area. I'm not talking about historicaerials.com kind of stuff...I want old (pre-1900).... I grew up in Pennsylvania and only live about 15 minutes from the state line now so I detect up there frequently in the nearest county. Pennsylvania has a TON of old maps cataloged online, such as http://ancestortracks.com/ and http://www.usgwarchives.net/maps/pa/county/ but just over the border into WV there is apparently NOTHING. I hate having to drive for 20-30 minutes each way just to detect older sites every single time I want to go. Sometimes, such as this time of year when light is limited, I just don't have that kind of time to put into a hunt.

Does anybody know any resources for old maps in West Virginia? I've looked everywhere I can think of online and have struck out...badly.
