A 1935 blueline map of Anderson County (Tenn.) showing rural postal delivery routes, dwellings, stores, schools and churches. This detailed RFD map actually names some homeowners, churches, schools and stores and shows housing structures and community buildings as well as significant economic and demographic features.
Of particular interest is the rural southwestern corner of Anderson County that would--just a few years after this map was made--be transformed into Oak Ridge, the "Atomic City," where production of one of the earliest nuclear bombs was centered. This map provides a close look at the rural landowners and communities that were there before Oak Ridge. These rural free delivery (RFD) county postal maps are extremely detailed and contain valuable early 20th century data about individual counties.
