A great new feature is available on the city website that allows users to see aerial maps of the city, comparing recent images with views of the Cottonwood Heights area from several decades ago.
The maps include aerial photos of the city from the mid-1940s to contemporary images that may be viewed by swiping a bar right or left.
What was once vast farmland or desolate wildland can be compared with modern development.
You can see what the land looked like before your home was built, or even before major roads were there.
The maps also include original land grant patent boundaries from the mid to late 1800s. A big thanks to Gail Conger and the Cottonwood Heights Historic Committee for providing research and data for the maps. Take a look at chcity.maps.arcgis.com
