Description
Plats and maps purchased by Garrett County Board of County Commissioners in approximately 1948 from the estate of a surveyor, C. Milton Sincell, and housed with the clerk of the circuit court for safekeeping.

A portion of the records in this collection have been previously inventoried in the Guide to Government Records as MSA C 2365: GARRETT COUNTY CIRCUIT COURT (Plats and Maps) 1858-1972.

The rolled documents at one time were indexed and tagged with letters and numbers. Most of these tags have since fallen off, and the index has disappeared. After being in the custody of the clerk, the collection was added to with items that did not fit with existing types of records.

The series includes several unofficial subdivision plats. Easement plats pertain to state and county roads, railroads, streets and sidewalks, and utilities. Topographic, tax, geodetic, soil, flood plain, and state highway maps are found in the collection, as are some architectural drawings of residences, commercial facilities, public buildings, and landscapes.

The survey plats encompass land conveyances and leases, exhibits in court cases, coal mines, quarries, mineral rights, cemeteries, and state and county boundaries. The coal mine plats often show above ground and underground layouts of the operations. Many surveys involve land and mines in West Virginia, and a few in Pennsylvania.
