Do You Like Maps? Then You’ll Enjoy the USGS Historical Topographic Map Collection

(Detail from a 1965 topographic map of northwest Washington)

For those of you who like maps, I was recently made aware of the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) historical topographic map collection, many of which are online. In searching for maps of the D.C. area I was able to find two relatively recent maps showing neighborhood names. The detail above is from a 1965 map of Northwest. The other map was a 1971 update of the 1965 map.
