    Maps and Plans


    Tarrant County Archives has an extensive collection of local and regional maps, plats and architectural plans. We are working on a database covering the entire collection.  Below is a list of examples which will grow in the future. Some are copies and not originals. If you are seeking a particular map covering Tarrant County, the Tarrant County Archivist will be happy to help
