John M. Hill Maps and Drawings Collection

Primary tabs

This collection contains maps and drawings created by cartographer and surveyor, John M. Hill. These images primarily depict the layout of subdivisions and individual properties in Laramie and Albany County, Wyoming. These drawings show the planning that went into the creation of Laramie’s subdivisions and even capture proposed subdivisions that were never developed. Comparing these images to present-day Laramie is a window into the city’s past. The collection is organized into folders representing the broad subdivisions, geographic location or attributes of the selected material. Emmett D. Chisum Special Collections is grateful to Robin Hill and her brothers for the donation of this rich resource.
