Tall Timbers Map Collection Digitized and Cataloged

By Carol Kimball, Librarian

Newly available through our online library catalog are digital versions of our map collection. They range from aerial photographs of the Red Hills region, to historic maps of Leon and Thomas Counties. There are hand drawn timber maps of the various plantations from the 1940s and ‘50s, and many other maps of regional interest.

Using grant money from the Panhandle Library Access Network (PLAN) and Capital City Bank Group Foundation, we were able to get the historic, one-of-a-kind maps scanned, and cataloged. The scanned maps are linked to the library record, and are accessible to the public, online. Visit the library page on our website to find the catalog link: http://www.talltimbers.org/info-library.html
