The Library of Congress today opens “Mapping a Growing Nation: From Independence to Statehood,” which replaces the three-year-old exhibition “Mapping a New Nation: Abel Buell’s Map of the United States, 1784.”  The rare Abel Buell map remains on display, joined by seven state maps and a railroad map.

“Mapping a Growing Nation” is on view until December 2020 in the Ceremonial Gallery on the first floor of the Thomas Jefferson Building, 10 First St. S.E., Washington, D.C.  The exhibition is free and open to the public from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday.  For an online version of the exhibition, visit
