1899 in the Pines


A seamless collection of twenty nine  South Jersey USGS 1:62,500 historic topographic maps from the turn of the century. Originally released in Google Earth format in 2015 as “Becks Map of the Pines”, these would have been the newest available topo maps when Henry Charlton Beck published his iconic “Forgotten Towns of Southern New Jersey” in 1936.

It is now offered as a universal format map that uses the free open source Mobile Atlas Creator program (for Windows, MacOS and Linux). Export any portion of the map to your favorite iOS and Android apps, desktop software or dedicated handheld GPS unit. An illustrated tutorial will guide you step by step.
