Mappy Monday - Historical Maps of Pennsylvania

This Mappy Monday I would like to share a site called Historical Maps of Pennsylvania. The site has the following statement to describe their collection:

Welcome to Historical Maps of Pennsylvania, showing images of the region and state from the 16th to the 21st century. Pennsylvania was founded in 1681, after a petition to the King of England from William Penn. The maps are organized chronologically, with road maps separate, and can be accessed using the links below. A few maps are illustrated here. Enjoy looking at this unique historical record of Pennsylvania.

A great place to visit before using the site is the Introduction to Historical Maps of Pennsylvania. The site also has several articles which are very helpful with explaining maps and their usage.

Enjoy and happy Mappy Monday!
