A New Scan of these Images

From the Atlas of the State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations. Compiled and Published by D. G. Beers & Co., 1870

These maps show both the geographic features of an area, as well as the locations and names/owners of many of the homes and stores. As a result, they are invaluable as a genealogy tool.

NOTE: All maps are scanned in overlapping sections in a width that can be printed on 8 1/2 wide paper, but may be longer than 11". For best results, save the images and print from an imaging program, rather than your browser.

The scans are numbered beginning at the top left corner and moving across to the right. The next row begins again at the left. For a map that is the size of the book (14" by 16") there will be three sections across for a wide map, and three sections across and two down (six total) for a long map. In order to make the maps legible they have been scanned at full size with a minimal amount of compression. As a result, they will take time to load. Each map, and section of map, has it's own scale.
