This collection is a valuable research source for the development of urban America. These maps record the creation and decline of cities and towns, building by building, in detail. The maps may contain information on the following: building size, shape, and construction, street names, street and sidewalk widths, property boundaries, buildings use, house and block numbers, textual information on construction, information on building use, pipelines, railroads, wells, dumps, and heavy machinery. Within each state, the maps are arranged by city name in alphabetical order. Within each city, each edition of maps is in chronological order. Each edition (if it has more than one sheet) is preceded by a key sheet showing the sheet number for each part of the area covered by the edition. The sheets follow in numerical order, each sheet being clearly identified by its sheet number. This is one reel for Reno, Nevada.

Finding Aids: Guide for this collection unless otherwise noted is Fire Insurance Maps in the Library of Congress (MICRO Z6026.I7 U54 1981).
