For anyone that likes old maps of Alabama – or if you would like to see what your Lake Martin property looked like before the lake was built – I have a great site for you.
The University of Alabama is a great site resource for these old maps. Some of them date back to the early 1800s. Here are links to Lake Martin counties:

While I’m on the subject of maps, please click on my map of Lake Martin. I have made a Google Map that shows Lake Martin marinas, restaurants, my listings of Lake Martin real estate for sale, and Coley Real Estate office locations. If you click on any of the listings, I have added in little pictures of the homes for sale, links to their information on my blog, and also links to their online video tours.
Since it’s a Google Map, you can switch back and forth between street map view and satellite photo images. They recently have updated parts of Lake Martin with the ability to really zoom in tight, so it might be fun to zoom way into your spot on the lake.
