Map of a Section of Hibbing


  1. Why would a town need an insurance map like this one?

  2. There are two Lutheran churches on this map situated across the street from each other. Why would this be?

  3. If you wanted to locate a certain home on this map, what symbols or tools on this map might help you?

  4. The numbers in the corners of the buildings tell us the number of stories in a building. At 325 Superior Street, there is a two- story house. What do you think the dotted line and the "1" in the corner of the front could possibly mean?
