To purchase land, one needs to know what is for sale and where it is. This is where plat books come in handy, and this digital collection form the University of Missouri offers up a range of plat maps for 114 different counties in the Show-Me State. The maps were originally published in the late 1920s or early 1930s, and they were created by the W.W. Hixson Company. Visitors can search the entire collection, browse all the images from the books, or just look around via county. When looking around by county, visitors can zoom in and out on each page in order to see platting boundaries, local geographical features, infrastructure improvements, and so on. Finally, visitors can also save their searches for later use, and this is quite helpful.
