New Crawford County plat book is available

Who owns Crawford County? Thousands of people have a piece of it, and they are listed in the new plat book published by the Crawford County Fair and the Crawford County UW-Extension, with assistance from Mapping Solutions. The 2013 book is available for purchase at the UW-Extension Office, 225 North Beaumont Rd., Suite 240, Prairie du Chien (326-0224) and the Fairgrounds Office, 120 Sunset Ridge, Suite 114, Gay Mills (608-735-4379). Premium wall maps are also available to order. Pricing information is available online at crawfordcountywisconsinfair.com.

New this year are aerial view maps opposite the landownership map pages. The 80-page spiral bound book features township and range maps of Crawford County. These maps include the property boundaries for all rural parcels within the township, the name of the owner and the number of acres owned. Also, there is a handy landowner index for easy cross referencing. Due to the large number and small lot sizes, the book does not include those maps of landowners within Crawford County towns, villages and cities. That information is available to the public through the Crawford County Property Lister.

This edition celebrates 155 years of the Crawford County Fair. The new book includes a government directory and information about Crawford County 4-H and UW Extension. Other maps found in this edition are: 4-H Club map, public hunting grounds, bike routes, snowmobile routes, county road map and points of interest, and municipal maps for Gays Mills, Prairie du Chien, Wauzeka and Soldiers Grove. Information about the public land survey system is an added bonus.

This information is valuable to anyone with a need to know who owns land in Crawford County. Prospective or adjoining property owners, hunters, foresters, timber and petroleum industry personnel, emergency services and many others may be interested in owning a copy.
