A real estate developer, going through a house before its demolition has stumbled upon an incredible find - thousands of maps. Those maps will be donated to the Los Angeles Public Library.
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Stashed in every crevice of the 900 square foot residence were maps. Real estate agent Matthew Greenberg, who found the maps, called a map librarian from the city to evaluate the find.
The maps were collected by a now deceased resident.
The library is excited to have the maps. Their addition will make the LA county library one of the nation's largest collectors of maps just behind the US Library of Congress and libraries in New York, Philadelphia, and Boston.
