This Atlas was published in 1915 by the American Geographic Institute of Indianapolis, Indiana.  It includes one map of "Principal Automobile Highways" in the United States, and a separate page for each state showing its railroads.  

The original maps are approximately 10 x 14", with extremely fine print.  The three strips (Western, Central, and Eastern OK) still have rather small print, but the files are relatively large so unless you're interested in a multi-county area or want to print out a copy it's best to go straight to the county maps. Each county map was enlarged before scanning, so they are much easier to read on screen. 

Oklahoma had very few highways in 1915.  There were local roads, but the railroads and trolleys provided the primary means of transportation between cities.   If you are looking for information about specific rail routes,  go to the Railroads page, where you'll find the stations on each line, or Trolleys, where you'll find the areas covered. 

Rivers and creeks are also shown, along with many populated places that have since disappeared -- some of which are quite obscure.  Vittum, for example, is not on the Oklahoma Transportation Department list of locations or in Oklahoma Place Names, and the GNIS has its location simply as Logan County-- but it's in this Atlas.  

Our copy belonged to Ross LOVELL and his wife Cecile COLE (whom I've been known to refer to affectionately as "my-grandmother-the-packrat").  All kidding aside, I do appreciate the keepsakes handed down to me -- and because the copyright has expired I'm sharing the information my family has preserved in hopes that it will also be of benefit to others. 

County and Regional Links


Each link in this chart takes you directly to the 1915 map of that county.  The original B&W scans have been replaced with ones that have the Railroad Stations colored in red.  This makes it easier to distinguish the wider lines that show Railroads from the thinner ones that signify rivers & creeks.  An asterisk (*) indicates that the railroads themselves have been identified, at least by acronym.  A double asterisk (**) indicates that the page has also been linked to the corresponding Railroad pages and checked against the 1972 map to determine whether it was still in operation then.  If you prefer the original large images, maps of Oklahoma and the portions of surrounding states that border Oklahoma are on the page of Railroad Maps.

Trolleys

To be more formal:  Interurban electrified railways.  But most of us just called them trolleys.  I hope to add more information about individual systems, but in the meantime here are the ones shown on the map:

From Norman (Cleveland Co.), through Oklahoma City and Edmond (Oklahoma Co.) to Guthrie (Logan Co.).

From El Reno (Canadian Co.), to a point between downtown Oklahoma City and Britton (Oklahoma Co.).

From Tecumseh to a point just north of Shawnee (Pottawatomie Co.).

From N. McAlester to Hartshorne (Pittsburg Co.)

From Nowata to Coffeyville Kansas.

From Miami to Hattenville (Ottawa Co.).
