Series XXVIII. Maps and Architectural Drawings

Scope and Content Notes:

Series XXVIII consist of maps and architectural drawings pertaining to real estate, land ownership, rivers, proposed canals, railroads, and machinery. This series is comprised of oversize maps and drawing, many of the material are from other series within the Helen Clay Frick Foundation Archives. The buildings drawings and blueprints mainly pertain to Henry Clay Frick’s real estate in western Pennsylvania, including Pittsburgh. Building materials include the Frick Building (1901-1902), Frick Building Annex (1905-1906), Union Arcade Building (1915-1917), William Penn Hotel (1914-1916), and the Highland Building (1909-1910). Drawings contain pre-construction plans, elevations, floor plans, altercations, and mechanical/electrical/HVAC/plumbing plans. Also, included are records pertaining to properties in and near the city of Pittsburgh. Most of these documents show various streets, avenues, alleys, and landownership in Allegheny County, Pa. For example, there are some copies of Hopkins Maps showing the early resident of H.C. Frick and Mrs. Frick.

Other materials relate to coal, coke, and steel manufacturing. Drawings for mill equipment mostly pertain to furnaces and ingots. However there are also some drawings for engines, strippers, and brakes. Records pertain to coal and coke entities that relate to the series of H.C. Frick Coke Companies, Shaw Coal Company, St. Paul Coal Company, Josiah Vankirk Thompson, and the Faraday Coal and Coke Company. These materials mostly consist of coal maps and land tracts for each company. Also, included are some charts and diagrams relative to the production of coke from 1880s to 1910.

The other major portion of records consists of material pertaining to the proposed Lake Erie to Ohio River Canal route. Ever since Pittsburgh’s industrial age development, creating a canal from the Ohio River to Lake Erie has been an idea. In the 1930s, Congress and the Board of Army Engineers held meetings for a possible canal route. There were four proposed routes and they were: Beaver-Ashtabula, Allegheny River-French Creek, Cincinnati-Toledo; and the Portsmouth-Sandusky. Being the shortest route, the Beaver-Ashtabula was selected and most of the records pertain to that proposal. This route started at the mouth of the Beaver River near Rochester, Pa. and went northward to the Mahoning River by New Castle, Pa. From there, the canal went northwest towards Youngstown, Ohio. The canal would have continued northward using Ohio’s northeastern lakes, rivers, and tributaries in the counties of Trumbull and Ashtabula. The canal would end at or near Ashtabula, Ohio. Materials included are maps, surveys, and plans for rivers, canal routes, townships, cities, and various waterways.

This series contains seven subseries: Series Related Material, Properties, Waterways and Canals, Machinery, U.S. Geological Surveys, Railroads, and Miscellaneous Maps. The records are arranged alphabetically by series and are dated from 1899 to 1984.

The Map and Architectural Drawings inventory is available in PRINT at the Archives Service Center.

Subseries 3. Canals and Waterways

Scope and Content Notes:

The transportation of coal, coke, and manufacturing materials used in the production of steel contributed to almost half of the cost of the finished product. Frick knew that transporting his materials via waterways and canals would greatly reduce his cost of shipping for his various companies. Frick who was always interested in the bottom line was highly invested in the research and development of canals and waterway transportation. This subseries illustrated many of the waterways and canal routes Frick used to transport both his raw material and Carnegie Company steel products. Many of the maps show the waterways and surround towns and communities in the general region.
