McKownville Improvement Association
McKownville - maps of property and development lots

The property subdivision maps linked here (all are pdf files) are those in the Association's files. As can be seen, the collection is far from complete.
Some of the maps are not high quality, being dependent on the available paper (or microfilm) source copy.
Lots shown on each of the most recent of these maps, for the area it covers, are in most cases the same as on the present day Albany County tax maps,
now in digital form and available online. McKownville covered by maps: 52.04, 52.15, 52.16, 52.19, 52.20, 63.00, 63.07, 63.08, 63.12
However, most of the original maps show more information than just the lot outlines and numbers.
