Proviso Township Map

Proviso Township is located west of Chicago's Loop in west central Cook Country.

The map to the right is Cook County.  Proviso Township is "blackened".

We have a variety of maps and aerial photos of Proviso Township and a few surrounding areas.  We have clustered them here.  For those interested in seeing the changes over the years it can be interesting to follow the often subtle but significant changes over the years.

It should be noted that the term "township" has two meanings of which we are aware.  All townships were originally laid out by surveyors. A survey township may be different than a political township. Through the years, some negotiating and swapping has resulted in portions of one surveyed township being POLITICALLY reassigned to an adjacent township.

Note:    These maps are best viewed with display resolution set to at least 1024 by 768.  If your display has less resolution, the township sections may be inappropriately displayed on this screen.
