22 Nov

The Historic Pittsburgh site comes in handy once again.  This interactive map allows viewers to inspect an area of old plat maps and satellite images, and using a slider, view what it looks like through the years.  For instance, you can zoom in on your street, and then see how it’s changed over time. You’ll be able to narrow down when your house was built, and even see if your street had a different name. In addition, using data from the National Registry of Historic places, you can research the history of specific buildings, then see how the neighborhood changed around it.

A+ site.  Check it out!
