1860 Niagara County Map

We have available for purchase the reprints of the rare 1860 map of Niagara County and 12 smaller maps. The large map contains hundreds of names of landowners and residents in the rural area. The names displayed on the large map are different than those that appear on 12 smaller maps of the individual hamlets. On the large map are such things as cemeteries, churches, etc. as well as lots and sections from the Holland Land Company.

The 1860 wall map was used for many years in the early schools throughout the county. The 12 smaller maps surrounded the larger map of the county. The 12 Niagara County village and hamlet maps are 17 1/2" X 23" and are printed on Scott offset 70# cream paper.

The large wall map is reprinted as the full 28" X 36" size on heavier off-white paper. It contains hundreds of names of landowners and residents in the rural areas of Niagara County in 1860. The names displayed on the large map are different names than those that appear on the 12 smaller maps of the individual hamlets. Also on the large map are cemeteries, churches, train lines and stations, schools, small crossroad communities, post offices, creeks and streams, as well as a scale of miles. The lots and sections from the Holland Land Company records are also displayed.

The 12 smaller maps are sold individually for $3.25 each or a complete set of the 12 maps is $32.50. The large wall map is $7.00 each.
