Content Description

Highway maps for the 55 counties of West Virginia created in 1937. They are in two tones (blue on white), in varying dimensions (including items in the range of 36 in. x 36 in. to 36 in. x 58 in., etc.), and scaled to 1 inch equaling 1 mile. Features indicated on the maps include: roads (US, primary state roads, secondary state roads); state, county, district, and corporate lines; railroads; streams; parks and forests; highway bridges; county seats; cities and villages; lodges; farms; houses; businesses; oil and gas wells; commercial airfields; schools; churches; mines; power plants; factories; hotels; and other information.

These maps were prepared by the State Road Commission of West Virginia in cooperation with the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Bureau of Public Roads. Data was obtained from a state-wide highway planning survey. The Works Progress Administration assisted with this project.

Both paper and digital copies of these maps are available.
