Historical Maps of the Lehigh Valley

Lehigh Valley Historical Maps Consortium

In the fall of 2019 a group of local archivists, librarians, curators, and historians with an interest in historical maps met at Lafayette College with the goal of establishing a collective inventory of maps related to the Lehigh Valley. Ultimately this inventory will provide a centralized resource for the discovery of maps which have been digitized for access over the internet, as well as for those physical maps which remain in map drawers in libraries, museums and historical societies across the Valley.

This website is the first result of this collaboration: a showcase for a growing collection of digital map images documenting the history of the Lehigh Valley, as well as a centralized registry of the physical maps available for research in person at area institutions. Please check back regularly as we will be adding more maps on a continuing basis starting in the early months of 2021.
