Hand-drawn map of Blount County, Tennessee showing civil district boundaries. Drawn by county surveyor, Andrew McTeer, this map was hand-colored in watercolor after the fact. The county's towns, mills, rivers, and creeks are denoted, as are the polling places for each district. The only branch of the short-lived Knoxville and Charleston Railroad extends from Maryville toward Knoxville.
Blount County was established in 1795 and was named for the governor of the Southwest Territory, William Blount. While undated, this map contains Loudon County, created in 1870, and the Knoxville and Charleston Railroad that was defunct by 1873. Therefore it was most likely drawn between those years.
