Fluvanna County Map (1863)

February 12, 2015

08/1863 - Map - Fluvanna CountyFor any locals who might be interested or fellow history nerds like me – I’ve started doing some digging into the local history of the area around Rosedale. I came across this pretty amazing, high-resolution scanned map at the Library of Congress of Fluvanna County. It was completed by the Confederate Engineer Bureau at the height of the Civil War (August 1863) and has a remarkable level of detail. (make sure you click on it, so you can zoom in)

I’m going to be adding a reference section on the site soon where I’ll keep all this kind of thing when I find it – for those of you who want to follow along at home.

    Rob,

    I own a small parcel off Venable Road. Thanks so much for posting this high-resolution map of Fluvanna from 150 years ago. The map is fascinating and makes me want to learn more about the County.

    And I love your photographs of the first snow. Your property is gorgeous. Enjoy.
