1860 WALL MAP OF NIAGARA COUNTY REPRINTED

The Niagara County Genealogical Society* is making available their printing of a very rare wall map of Niagara County. The original map has been out of print for over 100 years. In 1996 the NCGS began their reprinting effort with the reprinting of 12 individual maps that comprised the villages and hamlets of Niagara County in 1860. 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" x 12" x 23" and are printed on Scott offset 70# cream paper. The large wall map is reprinted in a full 28" x 36" size on heavier off-white paper. It contains hundreds of names of land owners 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 cross-road 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 for sale individually for $3.25 each or a complete set of 12 maps for $32.50. The large wall map is $7.00. (7% tax included and shipping extra as applicable.) If you would like to order these maps, please copy, print and complete the order form below. Schools, libraries and non-profit groups may order without a check (30 day terms) if a request is received on their organization's letterhead. (Tax-exempt organizations should submit their tax-exempt form with the order.)

*(The Niagara County Genealogical Society is a non-profit educational organization chartered by the New York State Board of Regents.)
