By the virtues of luck and timing, a 172 year old map of Mercer County is now digitized.
The Mercer County 1852 map is signed by Willshire Riley and was in the possession of Art Bruns in 1957 when he showed it to Bronsart Gilberg. Bruns came into possession of the map when a real estate agent prepared a residence for sale in the mid 20th century. When he found the map, it was folded and wet and to preserve it, he lacquered it to a board. [More]
