Back Issues of Newsletters
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. (8% NYS sales tax is included but shipping is
