Alabama County Road Maps
The Alabama Department of Transportation sells county road maps. These maps are very detailed, with many dirt roads (and cemeteries!) shown. I am pleased with the speed of delivery . Three days after mailing my order from Trussville, AL, I had my maps delivered to me.
The 1" = 1 mile and 1/2" = 1 mile scale maps are most useful to me as road maps. They have townships and sections marked, but I find the USGS 7.5 minute quadrangle maps to be more suited to plotting land ownership. The county road maps show creeks and branches, but are not topographical maps, as are the USGS maps. However, if you are looking for a cemetery or a general location, you may want to consider the county road maps maps as a alternative to the USGS maps.
A price list for the maps is also available from the address below, or on the web at http://www.dot.state.al.us/Bureau/Equipment/maps.HTM.
