Sanborn Maps is an American publisher of historical and current maps of US cities and towns. The maps were initially created to estimate fire insurance risks. Daniel Alfred Sanborn, a civil engineer and surveyor, began working on fire insurance maps in 1866. That year, he was contracted by the Aetna Insurance Company to prepare maps of areas in Tennessee.

Giles County was one of several counties surveyed for the 1878 D.G. Beers map project. The map includes identification of home and business owners throughout the county. Two of the original three maps still exist. One is in the Giles County Old Records Department on the Third Floor of the County Courthouse. The other is in the Giles County Historical Society's Genealogical Research Room located in the Giles County Public Library.
