Maps - Historic

These maps are presented in order to help define the early cultural and historic areas in Yellowstone.  Keep in mind that these maps are a snapshot in time and many of these mapped areas present a completely changed appearance today.  Despite the ca1970s advertising campaign proclaiming: "Yellowstone - You'll Love the Way it Hasn't Changed," change is normal and has been and will continue to be a reality in Yellowstone's landscape, both in its physical culture and the natural landscape.

Businesses have come and gone over the last 140 years, many disappearing almost completely, while some have remained, albeit in somewhat altered forms. Many roads that once were, are no more. Originally, most of the main roads passed right through the main areas of interest at Lake, Canyon, Norris, Thumb, and Old Faithful. Over the years many of those (and certainly not enough) have been rerouted to move traffic patterns away from the major points of interest.  A bit of imagination may be required to envision these areas as they exist today.
