Some "Birdseye" Views Available At Clarke Historical Library

 Birdseye view of Jonesville, Hillsdale County, Michigan,  from a Clarke Library image

The Clarke Historical Library at Central Michigan University has gathered together the largest collection of Michigan birdseye views in the state. With funding made available from the Library of Michigan, these views, along with additional views housed in the Bentley Historical Library, University of Michigan and the State Archives in Lansing, have been scanned. Please note that this project did not include Michigan views previously scanned and made available on the Library of Congress' American Memory Project. To view those views visit the Library of Congress website, http://memory.loc.gov/ammem/pmhtml/panhome.html.
