USGS topographic maps offer an opportunity to locate farmsteads using selected cultural and physical features of the landscape. Roads, fence lines, barns, orchards, gravel pits, PLSS boundaries, cemeteries, railroad tracks and schools are among some of the cultural features that can be accurately identified on the topographic quadrangle maps.  Rivers, creeks, hills, valleys, lakes, and swamps are physical features that can be identified using the topographic quadrangle maps.
