Kentucky State
Maps and Wall Art

Whether you’re from Kentucky or just like to visit, our custom printed Kentucky wall maps will bring the charm of the American South to your home or office. From our eye-catching elevation maps and geological relief maps to our handcrafted enhanced vintage and historical maps, every map of Kentucky we offer reflects the high quality and attention to detail our customers have come to love and expect from Muir Way.

What makes Muir Way maps of Kentucky unique?

When you purchase a Kentucky wall map from Muir Way, you are not getting a rolled up poster or mass-produced print. We custom print every Kentucky map using archival inks and fine art paper certified to last 100 years. The artwork on our maps is designed to enhance the beautiful terrain it features. For example, our elevation maps combine hand-shaded relief and Digital Elevation Data with historical map terrain, creating a stunning 3D effect on a flat surface. Our high-contrast hydrological maps depict every river in the state--even intermittent streams--and every body of water over 0.2 miles in diameter. When you purchase a map from Muir Way, you are purchasing heirloom-quality artwork to last for generations.

Does my Kentucky map come framed?

All of our maps are available framed or unframed. If you’d like to order your Kentucky wall map framed, you can choose from several different colors and wood finishes, and your map will arrive professionally custom-framed and ready to hang. If you’d prefer to use your own frame, all of our maps come in standard sizes for easy gift giving.

Where should I display my Kentucky map?

Whether placed as the main focus of your office or an accent in a family room, our maps are designed to catch your eye from any distance. You can display a large wall map in the center of the wall, or purchase several regional maps and arrange them near each other for a complementary series. Our hydrological maps come in several colors, and our geological relief maps feature a variety of rich colors. No matter which you choose, you’re sure to find a map that will look right at home with your décor.

What are the different types of maps of Kentucky available on Muir Way?

Our Kentucky maps are available in several different styles, including:

Kentucky relief maps - Our relief maps of Kentucky combine historical map landscapes with modern technology to showcase Connecticut’s geography in a new and exciting way. Using Digital Elevation Data and hand-shaded relief, we custom enhance vintage maps to create a striking 3D effect on a flat surface. See the different regions of Kentucky on our 1973 Kentucky relief map, or see a relief map of Louisville, KY as it looked in 1955.

Kentucky elevation maps - Like our elevation maps, our state of Kentucky elevation map also uses Digital Elevation Data from the USGS to create a high-contrast 3-dimensional effect, this time in beautiful black and white with a white background to make it really “pop” on the page.

Kentucky hydrological maps - Our high contrast hydrological maps deliver meticulous detail you can appreciate up close. For extra clarity, we apply a method called the Strahler Stream Order to show the hierarchy of streams as they flow from their source, with rivers shown thicker as they acquire the flow of tributaries. Trace rivers and lakes on our Kentucky hydrology map and you’ll see every single river and intermittent stream, as well as all bodies of water greater than 0.2 mi in diameter, in the whole state. Want to see the bigger picture? Try our Lower Mississippi regional hydrological map, Ohio Regional hydrological map, or our Tennessee regional hydrological map. Hydrological maps are available in black, blue, or green.

Enhanced vintage maps of Kentucky - If you like vintage maps, you’ll love our regional 1883 map of Kentucky & Tennessee. Unlike our hand-shaded relief maps, Muir Way historical maps don’t look three-dimensional. Instead, they depict a snapshot of history beautifully restored to retain its vintage charm without the wear & tear.

Kentucky National Park Maps - Do you like to explore the great outdoors? Our Mammoth Cave National Park map is reminiscent of a brochure-style national park map and shows major landforms, roads, and trails. Our national park maps come in several colors to match your décor.
