Self-proclaimed Brooklyn “data head” Jonathan Soma has loaded the blog with dozens of intriguing census data maps from the 1870s-1890s. The maps reveal little-known trivia about the U.S. For example, did you know that there was almost a state called Sequoyah? They also cover real estate values across the country and much more. You can use your mouse to zoom in and see the minute details of each.
The best part? The maps really look cool. Maybe I’ll find a space for one of them in my kitchen.
