Not a very detailed Bracken County map, but note that it's from 1800. That's old, folks. Robert Rennick drew this map of the locations of obsolete Bracken County post offices.

These detailed maps of Augusta from 1895 are Sanborn Fire Maps, originally created to assist insurance companies assess risk for underwriting fire insurance, hence “fire maps.” These we've downloaded from the Library of Congress' site for Sanborns. There are more, earlier and later, both of Augusta and Brooksville, as well as some that are simply listed as “Bracken County.” Not all have been scanned as of this writing (August, 2018), but the Library's intent is to eventually bring them online. Stay tuned.
