LAND USE MAP Community Residents 1934-1942

The MAP OF COMMUNITY RESIDENTS 1934-1942 was a large map drawn to accompany a survey of communities in the area of Pine Mountain Settlement School’s medical settlements.

The survey took place during the years 1934 through 1942. Each family name was written by hand on a separate 6″ by 7 1/2″ note card. Notations and updates in different handwriting were added in later years.

Birdena Bishop had assisted in the study of the local community in 1942. She most likely prepared the map, which showed where each family lived along the various creeks.

The following images represent various sections of the map. Hand-drawn on paper and attached to oilcloth, the map is in poor condition and may be difficult to read in some sections. The map only reflects the families located in the area during the specific year that it was prepared and may not reflect families who may have departed the region before 1942.

Links to Google satellite images and a table of community residents are provided for reference.
