Interactive historic map

Published 1871 by Theodore Reese, the map shown below is believed to be the oldest printed map of the city. It was restored and digitized by the Northwestern University Library and Northwestern's Academic & Research Technologies department. As an interactive map, this can be navigated using the controls in the lower right-hand corner. Lot identification numbers correspond to the historical Evanston real estate records and Evanston city directories, making this a useful tool for tracing the history of a property.
