Scope and Content Note

This series contains an inventory of the approximately 1,900 "blue line" maps produced by the State Engineer and Surveyor pursuant to Chapter 199, Laws of 1910 and Chapter 51, Laws of 1917. The maps inventoried depict all state owned lands and property prior to improvements effected for the Barge Canal System; the location of state property appropriated for the Barge Canal; and the location of the old canals and related state property in relation to the Barge Canal. The inventory functions as an index, and the volume is arranged alphabetically by location.

An inventory of miscellaneous maps and records found in a sub-basement of the Division of Canals and Waterways also appears in these records.
