These maps include the property boundaries for all rural parcels within the township, the name of the owner and the number of acres owned. Also, there is a handy landowner index for easy cross referencing.
The book included information about the OSU Extension Adams County and the local 4-H program. Additional maps in this edition include municipality maps of Manchester, Peebles, Rome, Seaman, West Union, and Winchester, as well as a county road map.
