Printable old map of Texas, Florida, Louisiana, Georgia, North & South Carolina, Alabama, Mississippi, Arkansas and Tennessee
These gorgeous old Maps of the Southern 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 highlighted map title link and a PDF of the map will automatically download to your device.
Texas is the second largest state in the US in both terms of size and population. The term “six flags over Texas”] refers to several nations that have ruled over the territory. They are: Spain, France, Mexico, Republic of Texas, Confederate States, and the United States.
Despite being know as the “sunshine” state, Florida is not the southernmost state in the United States. Hawaii is farther south.
Louisiana was named in honour of King Louis XIV of France.
Georgia was named in honour of King George II of England.
Alabama introduced the Mardi Gras to the western world. The celebration is held on Shrove Tuesday, the day before Lent begins.
The Mississippi River is the largest in the United States and is the nation’s chief waterway.
Mount Ida is known as the Quartz Crystal Capital of the World.
Tennessee’s Great Smoky Mountains National Park is the most visited national park in the United States. The park was named for the smoke-like bluish haze that often envelops these fabled mountains.
The University of North Carolina Chapel Hill is the oldest State University in the United States. South Carolina is named in honor of King Charles I of England, who first formed the English colony, with Carolus being Latin for “Charles”.

Any of these 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.
