Click on a county for a detailed map
The Interactive Maps component of the Flight to Freedom project allows historians, genealogists, and researchers to search for Maryland property owners and occupants during and, to a limited degree after, the antebellum period in a visual setting. Simply mouse over the map to read the county names, and click to view a map of that county. Click on a district to get a detailed map of that area, including names of residents, churches, schools, factories, town names, and some major roads. Click on a name for more information. You may also search directly for a name, place, and in the case of Baltimore City, street, by entering it in the Search box below. Note that this is a work in progress and we may not have yet coded the maps with the person or place you are looking for.
Please note that the maps used may change between the state, county, and district levels.
These maps are best viewed using the most recent version of Firefox or Internet Explorer.
Enter the place name or individual's
name you wish to search for.
Example: Smith, John
All maps are available for purchase from the Maryland State Archives
