History of the Map Department


The McLennan County Map Department was created in the early 1930's as part of the government assistance programs under President Herbert Hoover. Today the Map Department houses about 850 linen maps covering property ownership for McLennan County as well as city limits information, election maps, and railroad maps. The department consists of a department head and two employees who work directly under the Commissioner's Court.

In the future the Map Department will become computerized using a geographic information system providing not only ownership information but also election information, flood plane, and other pertinent information regarding this county.

The Map Department is visited daily by attorneys, surveyors, appraisers, real estate personnel, title companies , and lending institutions as well as prospective land owners searching for property to purchase.

This department was made part of the Engineer's Office in 1997, and has completed a joint venture with the McLennan County Emergency Assistance District (911) naming all the county roads and giving each resident in the rural area a physical address. A road map can be purchased from this department displaying all the new 911 road names as well as property ownership maps. The Map Department is open from 8:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday. It is located on the first floor of the Records Building, second to the last door on the right.
