This is a partial transcription of a book published by the Ohio Topographic Survey. It describes the history of how each major section of Ohio was originally surveyed and laid out in the late-eighteenth and early-nineteenth centuries. Only the sections dealing with the Connecticut Western Reserve section of northeastern Ohio has been transcribed as that deals with the greater Cleveland area.
It is impossible to digitize and display the larger maps mentioned here and the one-page illustrations that have been digitized are rather large files to download and cannot be viewed in their entirety on the screen without scrolling. This is necessary to provide the detail of the originals.
NOTE: THE ILLUSTRATIONS ARE NOT YET READY FOR VIEWING
Contents -- Only Chapter VII, on the Connecticut Western Reserve, is available here in digital form.
List of Illustrations -- Only the three illustrations for Chapter VII are available here in digital form.
