YOUR RESEARCH, YOUR ARCHIVES
Arranged chronologically, the map collection documents the development of DeKalb County over the past two centuries. The collection includes 1924 (with overlays from the 1930s-1960s) Sanborn Maps (books) of Atlanta and the 1928 topographical maps of Atlanta, as well as some local area maps. See Reference & Periodicals for plat maps selection.
Very few of our maps have been digitized due to their large size. Researchers must come to the archives to view maps in person. Please “Contact the Archives” to let us know what area(s) you’re interested in, we’ll check our map files, and get back to you.
Unless otherwise noted, the images in our collections belong to the DHC, a membership based non-profit, and may only be reproduced with our written permission. If permission is granted, you will be charged a fee and we will need information including, but not limited to, the intended use, publisher, and date of publication. Please contact the archivist for additional information about using images from our collection.
