The Library of Congress Map Collections Home Page has maps from 1500 to 2002. I saw this on slashdot this evening, and then spent about an hour looking at old maps of San Jose, CA. It's amazing how the town has changed. For my folks in New York, there are maps of Rochester and a ton of others. Very cool site.
