Free Antique US State Maps To Download (Mainly Midwest)

Free Antique US State Maps of Illinois, Pennsylvania, North & South Dakota, Virginia, Kentucky, Ohio, Michigan, Nebraska, Wisconsin & Minnesota

These gorgeous antique US State Maps of the Western United States come from an original US Atlas circa 1885. Unfortunately, I don’t have details of the original publishers as these maps were purchased loose as individual pages.
There is a scale drawn on each map and they are highly detailed giving county boundaries, county towns, railroads, and canals etc. The maps have been sharpened and cleaned up after scanning. They are beautifully printed and would look fantastic in a frame.
The PDF downloaded maps will be of a higher resolution then the images below.
To download the maps just click on the Map title link and a PDF of the map will automatically download to your device.

Wisconsin is known as “America’s Dairyland” because it is one of the nation’s leading dairy producers, particularly famous for its cheese.

Can’t find the state maps that you are looking for, then there are more here including and old map of Texas and other southern states.
Any of these antique US state maps would look great in a frame. The maps are larger than A4. Print them on your printer at home and they will automatically shrink to size. I recommend using a matte photo paper to help preserve that vintage look.
If you want large scale maps then simply email the PDF to your local printers and they should be able to print you off a high-resolution print ready for framing.
Pillarboxblue has some fantastic DIY and craft map ideas I recommend you check them out. If you are going to decoupage with them then I recommend using a laser jet printer.
