Map: Atlas of Fifteen Miles Around Washington


Published in 1878-1879 by G. M. Hopkins, this atlas mapped communities within a 15-mile radius of Washington, D.C. Separate editions were issued for Northern Virginia and for Prince Georges and Montgomery counties in Maryland. Each edition contained the same complete core set of maps along with additional features tailored to the covered area and its residents. The well designed and detailed maps are a trove of historical information, including the locations of homes and businesses along with the names of owners and residents. The 10 maps for Northern Virginia start at page 64 in this edition - "Atlas of Fifteen Miles Around Washington Including the County of Prince George Maryland" - hosted by Johns Hopkins University's JScholarship site. Three of the atlas maps cover parts of Braddock District: Lee District (p. 72) Falls Church District (p. 74-75) Providence District (p. 78-79)
