The Radnor Historical Society has a large collection of historic maps and atlases of our area. The maps were made for various purposes in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, usually for real estate uses. Atlases were made to document properties along the Pennsylvania Railroad, and were beautifully printed and hand-colored.

Thanks to the Athenaeum of Philadelphia's Greater Philadelphia GeoHistory Network for digitization and hosting. Copies of each map and atlas page are available to purchase via links on each map page.
