This last set of maps dates from the mid-1970s (with later updates) and highlights historic sites with modern-day reference points. It illustrates county, township, and waterway development over time and also indicates early communities and the origins of county formation. In addition, the maps are accompanied by print indexes of towns and geographical features.
The Rhodes Room is invaluable for both personal and business research. Whether a resident is attempting to complete a family tree, an heir is looking to settle an estate, a developer is seeking land-use details of a property, or a researcher is working to put together a cohesive narrative, the library’s genealogy department features a host of robust resources. Whatever the needs, genealogy librarian, Alex Floyd, and library assistant, Roberta Handlin, are on hand to provide expert assistance to visitors interested in these new historical resources – and to Ancestry online and Heritage Quest online.
The Rhodes Room is located on the ground floor of the Main Library in Newton (115 West C Street) and is open from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.
