Click here to view full size picture

In 1928 the Bureau of Chemistry and Soils of the U.S. Department of Agriculture published a Soil Survey of Antrim County, based on field work conducted in 1923. The field work was apparently conducted at about the same time as the Land Cover study performed by the Michigan Department of Conservation.

In addition to the general description and location of the various types of soils in Antrim County, the document provides a snapshot of agriculture in the County at the time of publication.

The 1928 soil survey document has been scanned, and is provided here for download as a 36.5 megabyte PDF file. The document, once downloaded, can be viewed with Adobe Acrobat Reader.
