Maps of the Jefferson Highway Association

We need VOLUNTEERS. Would YOU like to help map the Jefferson Highway in your state? Or just your neighborhood? We need volunteers from all states (and province) to help. Email Glenn Smith or David Stearns, the board member who is coordinating our efforts.

Members are working away to find maps or develop maps of the Jefferson Highway. The previous complete north to south map we had on the website is no longer available to us. We apologize for any inconvenience.

Our JHA Vice-President, Mike Curtis, has completed his map of the Jefferson Highway, with Google Maps.

♦ We have two other Google maps of the Jefferson Highway:
   One by Tima Svododa and
   One from Stan Hendrix

♦ David Backlin of Fort Smith, Arkansas, sent in a Midget Map of the Best Roads of Arkansas, map and cover of the handout from Fleming McElhannon Service Station.

♦ ♦ Oklahoma State University - Digital Maps
♦ ♦ Inventory of the Rand McNally and Company Records
♦ ♦ Academic and Special Libraries - Links to several libraries
♦ ♦ More links to more maps - University of Kansas

Also, here is an interesting map of the Transcontinental Routes (Be patient. It is a large map and may be slow to load). Note: the Jefferson bypasses Arkansas! Here is the map from a
1922 Jefferson Highway Tourist Guide showing the route before Arkansas was added. In 1926, the numbered highway system was created and the Jefferson Highway, along with the other named highways, faded away. And another Historic Map
  (that does not include Arkansas).

Other Tourist Guides of interest:
(All three are large documents and may be slow to download)
International Tourist Guide from 1923
Jefferson Highway 1923 Tourist Camp Manual
Jefferson Highway 1929 Mileage and Map
