Sanborn
This exceptionally detailed map of a small portion of Covington is from 1886 is a Sanborn Fire Map. They were originally created to assist insurance companies to assess risk for underwriting fire insurance, hence “fire maps.” We've downloaded this single page from the Library of Congress' site for Sanborns. This map is one of ninety-seven (97!) in the Covington-Newport set from 1886. You can download them all in incredible detail. Check back from time to time at their site, to see if they digitize the later sets from 1906 an 1909. Those later sets are available now, in black and white, at the Kenton County Library's site.
