Maps & Architectural Drawings

Maps and architectural drawings are compelling visual examples of the documentary heritage of the province of Saskatchewan, which is being collected and preserved by the Saskatchewan Archives.

Maps held by the Archives were created for many different purposes, including early survey maps dating from the 1870s, maps showing landowners in various parts of the province, maps showing Indian Reserves, railway development and early trails, soil survey and geological survey maps, and maps of forest reserves.

Architectural drawings document the built history of Saskatchewan, and depict a wide variety of buildings including churches, schools, banks, government buildings and private residences. The Regina office has several collections of drawings created by architectural firms in that city.

To access these records, begin your search in Threshold.  However, as not all of our Collection is described in Threshold as of yet, you are also advised to contact Reference Services.
