Richmond, VA 1956 USGS Map

We love old maps. Their coloration, typography, legends, notations, and sometimes even outdated place names all have a nostalgic quality that gives them a special beauty. If you share our love for vintage maps, you’ll appreciate this 1956 Richmond, VA USGS Map in our Historic Series. In remastering maps for this series, we go to great pains to clean them up, eliminating stains, stamps, handwriting, and other signs of map aging. We then rework them into easily framable sizes and bring out the richness of their colors and details. Because we print them on fine archival paper and canvas, all their original beauty shines through. Browse our extensive collection of parks, cities, states, and more. It’s like traveling in a cartographic time machine.

    • Made in the USA

      We consider our maps to be works of art, so we print and frame them accordingly. We offer two choices of print surfaces: fine-art archival paper and stretched canvas.

      Every map is custom printed. We have no inventory. Only when we receive your order do we produce your print on our 12-color giclée printer, using top-quality archival inks that will never fade.

      Fine Art Paper-Our archival paper is museum-quality, 100% cotton, acid-free, and certified to last 100 years. This assures sharp details, true colors, and exceptional durability.

      Canvas Gallery Wrap-If you prefer a frameless look, order your map on stretched canvas, which offers a bit more depth and texture. We use archival canvas, gallery-wrapped and varnished, stretched onto a 1.5-inch-thick wood frame.

      Reclaimed-Wood Frame-Handmade in Michigan utilizing wood salvaged from a historic mill in Detroit, that is oiled to bring out the natural beauty of the wood. The frames have a 1.75" face and 0.75" rough-cut sides.

      Black Frame-For a cleaner aesthetic, we offer a simple matte black wood frame with a 1.25" face and 1" sides.

      Great experience!

      A trouble-free experience on a unique item. Ordered it and received it exactly one week later. It's been hanging on my wall ever since. Thanks, Muir Way!

      Richmond VA map

      A lot of pink and red I know you are using USGS colors Might think about different clor(s) for water: James River, etc. white background ( like other cities) may set off street grid better

      Quality Print of the City I Love

      It's not everyday you buy a map, but when it comes to getting something for the guy who has everything, it's a good start. I've admired Muir Way's work for a while, so when it came time to buy a Christmas gift for a particularly picky brother I knew just where to go. While I enjoy everything produced by Muir Way, I was particularly surprised to find that they had my hometown of Richmond, Virginia under their Historic Series. Needless to say, I bought it. The process was simple, the customer service was phenomenal, and the quality is exactly the kind you would expect for the price. Like I said before, it's not every day that you buy a map, but when the time comes, Muir Way is the only way to go.
