Chesapeake and Ohio Canal Historical Park

This week, we visit Cumberland, Maryland to take a look at a newer Cadastral Survey, completed in 2002. The C&O Canal was completed in 1850 and became a National Historical Park in 1971. Did you know that today, you can ride a bike on the C&O Canal from Cumberland to Washington, D.C.? Read more in ArcGIS Story Maps.

The GLO website provides live access to Federal land conveyance records for the Public Land States, including image access to more than 12 million federal land title records issued between 1788 and the present.
The site also hosts images of survey plats and field notes, land status records, and control document index records, and is one of the most visited websites in the Department of the Interior. Visit for more information.
