1953 and 1970

Similar sets of photos were taken in 1953 and 1970, and they can be accessed in the same way either online or at the Archives. The flight numbers are not the same as in 1953, but the procedure to find them is the same.


1975, 1981, 1984

Several sets of printed aerial photographs are available in the Archives.

They have not yet been cataloged, but the township and range in drawers store them.

1994, 1999, 2002, 2004, 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2010

Google Maps begins providing aerial maps in Clay County in 1994.

Here’s how to access them:

  1. Install Google Maps (free) [you take the risk, and the Archives does not endorse]
  2. “Fly to” an address in Clay County.
  3. Zoom to an altitude less than 48,000 ft (bottom left-hand corner)
  4. When you are lower than that altitude, a four-digit year will appear in the bottom left (probably 1994).
  5. Click on that date, and a slider bar will appear in the top left, and you can choose any of the dates listed.
