Carlisle West Side Historical Maps 1885, 1890, 1896, 1902, 1909 and 1915

These are a series of historical Sanborn Insurance Maps of our neighborhood dating from 1885, 1890, 1896, 1902, 1909 and 1915.  It’s incredible to see how the area built up over the years and which businesses set up shop in our community. Did you learn anything about your home from these blasts from the past?

These maps came from the Penn State Digitizing project and you can view the images in detail, with zoom function, on their site.
