It is filled with a huge amount of detail including railroads, land grants, forts, military reservations, Indian reservations, forest reserves, non-subdivided land sections, and treaty lands with notations on date and document number. Adams County is not shown indicating county development is current through 1901. This large and beautifully colored map provides a detailed look at the state just after the turn of the century.
