1850 Agricultural Production in Pennsylvania by Heather Myers, Penn State University
The 1850 Agricultural Production in Pennsylvania interactive dashboard displays a high-level overview of agriculture in Pennsylvania during the mid-19th century. Data was compiled from federal census manuscripts.
The centerpiece is a map with farms per county using historically accurate boundaries and overlaid on a georeferenced historical map. The background is adorned with historic lithographs and headings are created with the Abraham Lincoln font to simulate typography from the era.
