About this Collection

This collection contains Newark Maps that document the history and evolution of this city. The library has more maps in its collections in the Charles F. Cummings New Jersey Information Center (most Newark maps are here), which are open for public view (e-mail first, as many non-Newark maps and geological surveys are held offsite).

Since 1666 the city of Newark has continued to grow and change, as seen in these maps.
