The Tar Heel State is sure to come alive in this Old Map of North Carolina - an 1846 reprint from the Mitchell Atlas. Our 16 x 20 Old Map of North Carolina is a reminder of days past in the American South.
Taken from the tar or turpentine that related to the sap that came from North Carolina's pine forests, where lumber was a major export item, the negative term of "tar heel" eventually became a designation of pride and the mascot of the University of North Carolina!
From the seaside and lighthouses of the Outer Banks to the peaks of the Appalachian Mountains, our Old Map of North Carolina marks all of the major landmarks on a map that was considered new at the time of its original printing. The Old Map of North Carolina is a lovely memento for anyone residing in North Carolina.
Framed in a beautiful real wood frame that is approximately 1” wide and ½” thick, old state maps come in various sizes and are carefully packed for delivery.
As this item is a true facsimile of an actual old map there may be slight imperfections which only add to its authenticity.
Please allow 3 - 5 working days for individual print production and hand-framing of the item in addition to shipping time.
