Anniston, 1887

This 1887 map of Anniston, Calhoun County, shows the layout of the town as it appeared at that time and was created for the Anniston City Land Company by German-born map maker Henry Wellge. The city was envisioned as an idealized planned community by founders Samuel Noble and Daniel Tyler, both industrialists from South Carolina.
