Map of Montgomery County, Ohio

11 feet x 14 feet, printed on Belgian Linen and sewn together

The Map of Montgomery County is the largest that exists. Printed as individual quads and sewn together emphasizes the idea of community and support—coming together creates place.

This piece was inspired by L.H. Everts who compiled and drew the Combination Atlas Map of Montgomery County, Ohio in 1875. The diagram below is the original plan of Dayton in 1799. The red oval shows where the location of the map is exhibited, in the Arcade building.

Exhibiting this map that was created in 2021 in the exact location that denotes the central part of the City of Dayton, creates a meaningful and significant mark upon history.

From “Combination Atlas Map of Montgomery County, Ohio” by L.H. Everts 1875
