Bessemer 1889 Map


This map is from the Bessemer Hall of History.  It is interesting in that it shows the "Marvel City", Bessemer, seeming to out-do the "Magic City", Birmingham.  Such is the way of entrepreneurs.  You may click on each section of the map to view a more detailed image.  The sections are organized by Township and Range.  From a given section you may return or navigate to adjacent sections.



This map shows a variety of mines and furnace sites, as well as railroad names in the early days of the District and should prove to be a useful reference.  Enjoy!
