In 2015, I began work on a cartography project which sought to create a map of all of the historic water mill sites on the upper Clinton river located in South East Michigan. This project grew to include the historic country estates of the same geographic area. The final map was printed in June 2019. See below for images depicting the entire process. Prints of the map are available to purchase for $100 each + $25 S&H (continental USA only). The prints measure 36" x 36". Please contact me by email to order a print.
NOTE: The map is to scale but does not take into account the shape of the planet earth, i.e. although the map includes several townships, it does not account for the fact that the western border of Michigan townships (and generally all townships east of the Mississippi river) do not consist of full sections (i.e. 1 square mile or 640 acres). Generally all six sections on a township's western side are modified to account for the shape of planet Earth.
