Great River Arts started its journey in 2006 when Lisa Middleton began restoring and painting historical French maps of the Mississippi River. Art collectors and interior designers loved the subtle enchantment of the gently painted maps, and demand for her restored and painted historic maps quickly spread across the country.
Her historical map collection rapidly developed into custom map services for private estates, resorts, lakes, public lands, and regional attractionsall with the vintage charm of Lisas earlier works, applying borders, cartouches, and fonts found in historic maps from the 1850s and earlier. Each piece of art created by Lisa is the result of an in-depth, collaborative process between cartographers, architects, colorists and professional researchers. An intrepid traveler, Lisa continues to paint originals and work with her design team from the road and her home base near Glacier National Park, Montana.
She pursues new map suggestions and collaborations every day. Please stay updated on Lisas newest maps and travels.While great care was taken to produce this map, the information was derived from digital databases from various sources.
