A large and fabulous mining map of the region around Prescott, Arizona in 1895. Locates hundreds of named mines, ranches, school houses, towns, railroads, roads, and post offices. Includes Jerome, Prescott, and Congress. Rivers and streams are over-printed in blue. Features a red overprinted line and note that "represents the Prescott & Eastern Railroad, now completed to Mayer, and proposed to be extended to Alexandria." Details the course of the United Verde & Pacific Railroad with good detail in Jerome including the smelter. The Santa Fe, Prescott & Phoenix Railway is clearly shown. The Prescott and Arizona Central R.R. line extending north from Prescott appears to be cancelled through red overprinting. A terrific railroad and mining chart.
