Early Maps of Kerr County

My good friend and fellow blogger, Joe Herring had this post today about the early maps of Kerr County. As he stated, I found these on the Internet and shared with him.  He also said; while these are not really quality images, because you can’t magnify them and see all the details, they do give you a rough idea of what the area looked like in the early days of the county.  The oldest, from around 1850, doesn’t show Kerr County or Kerrville; the nearest marked landmark is Bandera Pass.  Many thanks to Joe for the post and sharing these with all of us.  Click HERE to visit Joe’s history blog.
