Built Heritage Resource Guide

Topographical Maps

NSARM holds many topographical maps for Nova Scotia from the early years up to the 1980s. Two series — one produced in the 1920s, the other in the 1950s — are of special interest to built-heritage researchers, since they show locations of houses (but not residents' names).

This Built Heritage Resource Guide is unusually rich in the information given in the Note Areas accompanying most images. So... when you scan down the pages, be sure to click on the thumbnails so that you can enlarge and explore the images, plus read the extra details provided beneath each.
