1825 Mills Atlas - Laurens District
Laurens County, South Carolina Genealogy Trails
Transcribed by Andrew Staton

The Mills Atlas (Atlas of the State) was first published by Robert Mills in 1825. It was the first Atlas of its kind in the United States, compiling surveys completed by miscellaneous surveyors to form a detailed atlas of the entire state. In 1818, Henry Gray was hired to complete the map for Laurens District. He completed the 720 square mile district in 1820, at the scale of 2 miles to an inch. On the map, names of places and surnames of landowners in the county were included. This excludes inside the city limits of Laurens(ville).
