Sanborn Maps of Arkansas

The Sanborn Map Company was the primary American publisher of fire insurance maps for nearly 100 years. The maps provide block-by-block coverage of detailed information about historical buildings. Construction material is indicated, and information such as building function and locations of water and gas mains are available in some cases.
