This is an atlas mapping not only the districts of Harrison County, but the LAND OWNERS, TOO!
If you had an ancestor living in Harrison (who owned property), this will show you where he lived.
Though I optimized these maps for the internet, they are still very large.  Please allow plenty of
time for loading.  I will add each district as I am able, until all are uploaded.

Town of Shinnston, 1886 (Clay District)

Coal & Clark Districts, 1886:  These maps were the fuzziest, so I did the best I could in clarifying them.  Schools are marked in red, cemeteries in yellow, and the "Alms" House (poorhouse) in green.

Clay District, 1886:  Schools marked in red; cemeteries in yellow.

Eagle District, 1886:This map is made up of 2 files that I could not merge.

 merge the two maps, so there is a bit of space between:)
