We’ve recently finished work on group of mid 20th-century town and property maps from Anson County. The maps are held by the library at South Piedmont Community College in Polkton, N.C.

There are 48 maps now available online, ranging in date from the 1940s through the early 1970s. A few of the maps show the town of Wadesboro, but the majority detail the boundaries of specific properties, including factories, churches, cemeteries, and schools.
