Sanborn Insurance Maps

 These maps were produced for fire insurance purposes in cities and towns between 1867 and 1970. Their advantage is that the show building outlines and indicate brick or frame construction. Maps were produced for Worthington in Sept. 1922 and Sept. 1929 and used until 1943. Eighteen maps are available online with a Worthington or Columbus library card. Go to the library website and click Research > History, Biography and Genealogy > Sanborn Fire Insurance Maps > Field Search > Title > Worthington
