Historical Map Society of British Columbia
Interested in Old Maps? Then join us!
Welcome to the web site of the Historical Map Society of British Columbia.
We are a group of people interested in history and in particular its illustration through the use of historical maps. We specialize in the historical maps of British Columbia but are interested in maps from all over the world, and of all ages.
We hold meetings approximately once a month, in Vancouver, and all are welcome to attend. See the meetings page for the schedule, speakers, and topics.
We also have a database which attempts to list all historical maps up to Confederation in 1871. Though far from complete and mainly at this time lacking illustrations, it is nevertheless a significant resource.
Click on Search to access the database.

This is a new site under development, so right now it is incomplete.
