Historical Maps of Maine. (U Alabama) See instructions for viewing these maps; for some reason, you can only view them in a small pop up window, which negates much of their value. You can, however, purchase a map, which might be worth it if you will be doing extensive reseach in Maine.
You can purchase reproductions of maps from old county atlases at this site. They offer county, town and city maps, but unfortunatley, no preview of the map you are ordering.
Next, see what is available for your counties of interest at at one of these statewide sites. For each, use the county selection list to find out what is available for the various counties. Content will vary.
