State of Minnesota
In the early days of Minnesota, the land
had to be surveyed and maps drawn. 
Henry Blackwell (10.2.5) was one of the
Surveyors for Douglas County and other
areas of Minnesota.  Eventually, many
maps had been drawn using the tools of
the day.  This page will show the Maps
displayed in this website.  Maps will
continually be loaded onto this page.

The image is a Map of Minnesota in 1866.
I have left it quite large to improve the clarity.  Adjust side bars as necessary as some of the small writing is difficult to see.
Locate VanLoon Lake, and you will see the property of Miner VanLoon (Lower left) directly across the lake from the property of Henry Blackwell.
Blackwell Lake (Near Holmes City) is still called Blackwell Lake.  Van Loon Lake is now called Pocket Lake.
