Mapping Waco: A Brief History | 1845-1913

Welcome to the digital component of “Mapping Waco: A Brief History, 1845-1913,” presented by The Texas Collection and the Baylor University Libraries Digital Collections.

The maps in this collection represent the changing landscape of Waco from its earliest days in the mid-1800s to the boom years of the late 1910s. Selections include bird’s-eye views of the city drawn in the late 19th century; illustrated maps of new additions and suburbs; and blue lines of individual plats on Waco city streets.
