Sanborn Map Collection


The Sanborn Fire Insurance Maps are a collection of maps of towns and cities giving detailed information on building location and structures for insurance purposes. The Evans Map Room collection contains maps of various New Hampshire towns. The Jones Media Center has the Vermont counties of Orange and Windsor on microfilm.

Fire insurance maps in the Library of Congress : plans of North American cities and towns produced by the Sanborn Map Company : a checklist, a book in our collection, is now available online from the Library of Congress. This checklist provides the names of towns in each state and the years of any Sanborn maps produced. In some cases, the online checklist provides links to online collections of Sanborn maps.

The Sanborn Map Company still produces maps for limited areas in the country. For more information, click here.

Part of our own collection of New Hampshire towns is now online. The remaining sheets are coming soon.
