The Digital Sanborn Maps of Louisiana (1867-1970) database provides access to historical Sanborn fire insurance maps. With repeated and detailed mapping of more than 100 cities and towns in Louisiana, the maps chart community changes across the century. Dates for specific locations vary.

The maps present a wealth of information, such as building outline, size and shape, windows and doors, street and sidewalk widths, boundaries and property numbers. They often include details on construction materials and building use, as well as pipelines, railroads, wells, water mains and dumps.
