Kentucky County Maps 1921-1930
Kentucky Geological Survey VI


These maps were created in the period 1920-1931 by the Kentucky Geological Survey. They vary in size from about 2 feet by 2 feet to as large as 3 feet by 3 feet or larger. They are very detailed, showing towns, churches, schools, roads, railroads, creeks, rivers, and other landmarks, some of which had disappeared even by the time the maps were created, and some having been gone for many years, yet were still shown on the maps. For the Jackson Purchase counties in Kentucky that were a part of the TVA Kentucky Lake Project in the late 1930’s, these maps offer a “last look” at Marshall and Calloway counties as they were prior to the creation of Kentucky Lake, which flooded parts of both counties. The same is true for the maps of Trigg, Livingston and Lyon Counties, which reflects the area known as the “Land Between the Rivers” prior to that area having been declared a national park and the families evicted.

The descriptions below are only a partial listings of the contents of each map. More county maps will be added in the future.

The maps are printed on archival paper in black-and-white and are $14.00, which includes First Class postage and a mailing tube. Remittance by check or money order should be sent to: Bill Utterback, PO Box 51796, Amarillo, TX 79159-1796. Please be sure to list the map(s) desired and provide a shipping address. This is not a profit making venture for me, but expense involved with creating duplicating masters from the originals and copying the maps themselves does not allow me to supply them without cost. PayPal may be used.
