Research Resources: Collection of Historic Maps Digitized For the 200th Anniversary of the Santa Fe Trail
A collection of historic trail maps has been digitized and is available online in time for the 200th anniversary of the Santa Fe Trail. This project completes a two-year effort for the Kansas Historical Society, in partnership with the Kansas City Area Historic Trails Association (KCAHTA). Now available in the Historical Society’s online digital archives, Kansas Memory, these maps will be of interest for those who want to understand the legacy and impact of the historic frontier trails on our nation’s heritage.
The digitizing project involves 262 of 342 U.S. G.S. Topographic Quandrangle Maps (Quads) from the KCAHTA’s Lee and Dorothy Kroh Collection maintained at the Mabee Learning Commons on the campus of MidAmerica Nazarene University in Olathe.
