'Mystery' map tells a history lesson

     2-13-14-kamiah-city-hall-maThe City of Kamiah discovered an interesting map during a recent basement-cleaning venture at City Hall.

     Mayor Dale Schneider recently showed the large color map to the Progress. He hopes to put the map on display at City Hall.

     Very little is known about this $2 Bureau of Land Management map dating from 1964. Schneider has no idea how or why the city came to own the map. What sets this map apart is the description of how the United States came to be what it was in 1964. It depicts the historical boundaries.

This map was recently uncovered in the basement of Kamiah City Hall. The map is a treasure trove of history. Ben Jorgensen/Progress
