Library Jewel #3: 1934 map of Columbia County

Our third and final Library Jewel for August features a rare 1934 map of a county many of you might not know much about: Columbia, located in southeastern Washington between Walla Walla County to the west and Garfield County to the east. The map shows a proposed reorganization area (perhaps for school districts), school district boundaries, existing schoolhouses and new schoolhouses “corrected to July 1 1934.”
We plan to launch the online poll of our three Jewels Friday, so be ready to vote for your favorite!
