MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — A new, interactive map highlights historical structures and places in Alabama.
The Alabama Historical Commission says its Historic Preservation Map Initiative is now available to the public. The agency has converted its paper files into digital resources that can be viewed by clicking on multiple locations on an Alabama map. The map is still a work in progress, but the agency says 42 counties have been plotted so far, and more than 40,000 points have been mapped into one layer.
About 130,000 documents have been scanned including survey forms, photographs, booklets, and maps.
