Originally compiled by the famed local historian Asa Fitch, this map first appeared as part of his 1850 report on the county's topography. It identifies settlements, rivers, creeks, roads, churches, railroads, canals, towpaths, mills as well as the usual topographic features. The map occupies the middle panel of a three panel 18" X 24" sheet; the other two panels include the complete text of Fitch's original Report, which is probably the most detailed description of the area at mid-century.
