Description

Interesting large promotional map of Kenova, West Virginia.

The map was issued 4 years prior to the town's incorporation in 1894.

This larger colorful map shows the towns of Kenova, West Virginia, North Kenova Ohio and Catlettsburg, Kentucky, Ceredo, West Virginia and Hampton City, Kentucky, at the confluence of the Big Sandy River with the Ohio River.

The lines and depots of several railroads are shown, as is a Government Dike on the Ohio River, Coal Tipples and the Wharf Boats and Steam Ferry across the Ohio River.

The topographical depiction of Locust Hills and Chestnut Hills, which are apparently suburbs of Kenova, are quite nicely rendered.

Rarity

The map is apparently quite rare. We locate only a later 1892 edition of the map at the Kenova Historical Commission Museum.

Condition Description
