Historic Map Works Library Edition: Address Search

Historic Map Works™ Library Edition is one of the most extensive digital map collections available, with over 1.5 million high-resolution, full color historic maps.

Address Searching

The Address tab allows for searching the following information: 

  • Search by geocoded United States addresses. If no exact match is found, results for the city or town entered are displayed.
  • The physical address (i.e., 123 Main Street) is not required, but the City and the State fields are mandatory fields to retrieve results.

Some states have additional atlases that are searchable; they are indicated in the State dropdown menu by an asterisk.


Once on the results page, another search may be conducted at the top of the page rather than returning to the search tab.


Many locations have multiple layers of temporal coverage (e.g. search for 4 Yawkee Way, Boston, MA note the area displayed  covers Fenway Park across 14 different maps year spanning 1873 to 1938).
