Maps and Spatial Data: WPA Land Ownership Maps
During 1935 and 1936, the Works Progress Administration and the Oklahoma Tax Commission produced approximately 2,400 maps to determine the value of real estate. The maps indicate the owner of all the farmland in each county and each usually represents a full 6 by 6 mile township. To make the collection more accessible, Maps and Spatial Data has georeferenced and combined all of the maps into a single, interactive experience.
Use the map below to find the map corresponding to your area of interest, either by zooming in or entering a search into the search box. To view and download the individual source map, click the area you're interested in, then click Click to view and download the original map in the popup.
