Map Day A Smashing Success

Channeling 19th century mapmaker Franklin Leavitt, modern day cartographer and map collector, Kurt Masters welcomed a large group of map fans to the Conway Public Library’s map day, on Saturday, December 3, 2016.

 On display were a wide variety of maps, of different sizes and shapes.They were the subject of serious study …

… and friendly debate and discussion. Folks such as map expert Adam Jared Apt also brought additional maps to share.  

As a result of this program, the Conway Public Library’s Henney History Room will be working with the Freedom Historical Society to do a possible map exhibit for Summer 2017. 

If you missed our map day, or are simply interested in learning about area maps, please visit us at the Henney History Room. We have over 400 maps in our collection, so be sure to plan on staying a long time.
