This collection of aerial photos was taken in 1956, and recently became available to the History Museum. We have divided the county up by regions based on the 7.5 topographical map that covers each one. The maps represent different years, due to when they became available. This set is reduced in size for display via the Internet. You may visit the History Museum and view the images in full size on our computers there.

The photos occasionally cover parts of two or more topographical maps, and we have tried to show the photo's location on the map best covered. Also, some of the photos are missing, which leaves parts of the county unavailable.
