EVER WONDER WHAT WAS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE LAKE?
I am pleased to announce my new series of "Under the Lake" maps.
Using advanced mapping technology, I have blended authentic basin surveys from 1929-1930 with modern contour maps to create a unique look at the bottom of the Lake and the surrounding topography.
"Under the Lake" maps depict the location of former buildings, roads, cemeteries, and fence lines, as well as stream channels, large springs, and submerged islands.
Here are some samples:
The following maps are now available:
PORTER MILL BEND / HURRICANE DECK, mile markers 33-40. Includes Porter Mill spring, Purvis, and the Hurricane Deck bridge area.
GREEN BAY TERRACE / LINN CREEK COVE, mile markers 29-31. Includes the mouth of the Niangua, Lovers' Leap, and all of Linn Creek cove.
OLD LINN CREEK. A detailed close-up of the town that went under the waves. Nearly 100 building sites are shown; more than 20 are specifically identified.
IRONTOWN / BOLLINGER CREEK, mile markers 43-47. Features the site of the Osage Iron Works and the original iron smelter that still rises above the lake waters. Also includes the location of Curtwright spring.
TURKEY BEND / LINN CREEK BEND, mile markers 21-30. Centers on the Tan-Tar-A area and features Racetrack Hollow, Blue spring, a lead mine, and six inundated cemetery sites within three miles of each other.
Each mapsheet measures 12" by 18", including a narrow border, and is printed on heavy poster stock. They look especially nice when placed in poster frames.
The maps come with fact sheets, also suitable for framing, that explain the unique details of each section.
The maps shown above are ready now. More will be added each month.
The price is $6 per sheet, plus tax, shipping, and postage.
Contact me at Under the Lake Maps for ordering instructions. Thanks.
