The book, "Atlas of Holmes County, Ohio - From Actual Surveys by and Under the Direction of Henry Cring, C. E.," published by J. A. Caldwell, Condit, Ohio, 1875. Please note: This is not a paper book, it is a scan of the original paper book into the digital Adobe PDF format, written on a CD-ROM.

If you could find a copy of the 1875 printed book, it would be very expensive.


This book contains a number of fine maps of Holmes County Townships, including towns & villages, and land ownership as of 1875.

The book has about 105 pages by number - the publisher also numbered a lot of blank pages so there are really only about 50 pages with data on them. There are numerous illustrations of Holmes County scenes. There is no Index, but the Table of Contents is fully linked to the pages so that you can easily browse the book using the Adobe Reader software (included).
