Ownership Maps by Township

What’s a township map?

township map covers an area 6 by 6 miles (as specified by the Public Land Survey) and is defined by the township and range coordinates mapped out from established meridians and base lines.  These maps were generally drafted at a scale of 2″= 1 mile, and often displayed parcels of land down to 10 acres in size.  Numerous publishers, including Kroll, compiled such maps by county, assigning page numbers to each township and range.

Kroll has an archive of these township maps that includes numerous Washington State Counties.
