Question: I understand there are hand drawn maps of many of the Massachusetts cities and towns in the 1790's?  Where are these located in Massachusetts to view?

 

Answer:  The collection you are referring to I have blogged about before in December.  However I am always glad to discuss the wonderful maps at the Massachusetts State Archives.  The collection you refer to is the Maps and Plans of Massachusetts series of 1794.  To find out more about seeing copies of these maps in person go to: http://www.sec.ma.us/arc/arccool/colidx.htm  In most cases these maps indicate the land owners on each map.
