Kellyco Utah: Ghost Towns
Contains Six Maps of Utah. The Very Readable Maps (measures 18x24" unfolded) were Selected for Quality, Age and Location Details

The Utah Ghost Towns/Sites package features a transparent overlay printed from a modern Utah road system and placed over the four sections of the 1900 map of Utah. The purpose is to show the changes in the state over a period of approximately 100 years. Place names may appear on the historical maps but may be absent on the current map. The reader should note that some of the early locations were moved from time to time while others changed their names or simply failed. The reader should be reminded that some of the early place names might have been a post office operated in a ranch house or an early stage station as well as town sites. Some locations were moved from time to time while others changed their names or simply failed.

Accompanying text with anecdotal stories from the history of each of the four sections of the state appears on the reverse sides of maps #3-6. For example, the SE section of the state as shown on the 1900 map displayed portions of six counties with San Juan as the largest. Thirty seven town names appear in this area with only 11 reporting inhabitants. In that same section, Hanksville first reported a population in 1900 with a count of 100 souls. It was the settlement that was located nearest to Robbers Roost Country…a place known as a hangout for Butch Cassidy and the wild bunch in the early days. Surrounded by high cliffs and deep canyons with difficult rivers, it afforded a perfect hideout that was never penetrated by the law.

While perusing and studying the maps in this collection, readers should be reminded of the limitations of early surveyors who most likely used primitive equipment and limited cartographic knowledge. All maps in the Ghost Town series are reproduced from authentic documents on file from various archival collections such as the National Archives, Library of Congress & state libraries.
