Published by iconic American mapmaker Rand McNally, this detailed depiction of the state of Kentucky shows the state in a time of significant transition. The whole nation was experiencing a rapid shift from the 19th to 20th centuries, and progressions in automobile and rail technology were giving the mid-west greater access to importing and exporting goods. Kentucky’s economy in the early 20th century was still primarily driven by agriculture, with tobacco and corn being profitable crops. Due to the vast cornfields, the distillation of Bourbon became one of the most iconic economic drivers for the state and is a thriving industry to this day, with Bourbon County being the only place able to produce the spirit.
The state had been less affected during the period of reconstruction following the Civil War as it had remained a neutral territory. BY 1905 coal mining had become one of the most lucrative industries in Kentucky, and many subsistence farmers looked for work in the mines instead of the fields. This shift from agrarian to industrialized mining saw the state start to expand and develop more city centers spurred on by greater rail access.
During the so-called Gilded Age, Kentucky, like the rest of the nation, saw a dramatic shift both economically and culturally. Towns and cities were expanding, and job growth was becoming more centralized and less agrarian. This map stands as a testament to this evolution, allowing the viewer to transport back in time; this is truly an authentic piece of cartographical history.
