Historical County Plat Maps from South Central Wisconsin and Early Madison City Directories
This digital collection of historic plat books and city directories provides accessibility to early information about South Central Wisconsin, specifically Columbia, Dane, Portage and Wood counties. A variety of the oldest plat books, atlases and city directories were chosen because of their frequent use and delicate condition. They are widely used by the public for local history and genealogy and even for those trying to find out why a street got its name. The historic plat books help people to trace neighborhoods and streets from what was once farmland.
