Sue Garwood demonstrates how to use and understand Sanborn Insurance Maps, which are on display at the Rice County Historical Society Museum. These maps include details including where doors and windows were on buildings, what style roof they had, and what materials they were built from. They can be an invaluable resource to owners who want to learn more about the history of their buildings.
