1825 Maps of South Carolina Districts, Mills Atlas - English

Mills Atlas - 1825

Robert Mills, who was born in Charleston in 1781, published this set of maps in an atlas of the state in 1825. Mills served as state architect for South Carolina, designing the Lunatic Asylum and many local court houses, and later won the contest to design the Washington Monument in Washington, DC. This atlas, made for the South Carolina State Legislature, contains 28 district maps and a state map, made from an earlier state sponsored survey of all the districts from 1817 to 1821, signed by twenty-two (22) different surveyors, and updated in 1825. It was the first official atlas of the state of South Carolina.

The following is a 1938 reproduction provided by Mrs. Lucy Hampton Bostick and Mr. Fant H. Thornley of Columbia, SC.
