GENEALOGY & LOCAL HISTORY COLLECTIONS

1898 ATLAS OF LAKE COUNTY, OHIO

This book is over one hundred years old.  Being in a public library collection it has had hard use, well beyond what would be expected for an item this age.  The paper is fragile.

 Over the years pages have gone missing.  These includes pages 88 through 103, with maps for Kirtland Township, Fairport, Madison Village, Mentor Village, Painesville Village, and Richmond (now called the Village of Grand River).

 

This Atlas can be accessed online at Lake County Geographic Information System (GIS) webpage http://www.lakegis.org/TaxMap/, use the link for the Lake County Tax Map Department http://www.lakegis.org/TaxMap/, and then choose Surveys http://www.lakegis.org/TaxMap/SURVEYS.htm.  [see view below]

Also available is a color version map made from the 1898 Atlas at http://www.lakegis.org/flexviewer/index.html.

        These are our most recent surveys we have on file.  Lake County instituted 
        conveyance standards on January 1, 2001.  One requirement is the submission
        of a survey when splitting properties or creating a new metes and bounds 
        description.  These submittals have been scanned in TIFF and PDF format 
        for viewing and downloading.
 
        These are old archived surveys that the Tax Map Department has collected 
        over the years.  They range in years from early 1900's to just before the 
        inception of the current conveyance standards in January 2001.  These have
        been scanned in TIFF and PDF format for viewing and downloading.
