1868 Map of Ionia, Michigan Drawn by A.Rugers
Library of Congress Map
This is a map of Ionia, Michigan as it was in 1868. It is drawn in pencil by one "A. Rugers" of which I know nothing more, other than to say that A. Rugers was an excellent artist. The details in this map are incredible. The complete file for this map is some 176 megabytes making it far too large for any internet use. I have extracted some of the more interesting details of the map as well as for the landmarks numbered on the map itself.
Below is a link to an index of various landmarks the artist numbered on the map, along with a map like the one above with labels indicating the location of the landmark within the town. Enjoy!
