There are Walton maps for 1921 and 1927, but to our knowledge, only Walton was mapped in Boone County.

  By all mean, check out this site. It has aerial photography of Boone County. Note tabs on the right at that site that let you select the years of the photography you want to see: 1938, 1949, 1954, 1960, 1969, 1974, 1981 and many newer years. Shown is the intersection of US 25 and US 25 in Florence. Not exactly maps, but aerial photography is, in our opinion, not much different from mapping.
