Biddeford in 1795

I’ve been cleaning and sorting out the map cases and have come across some neat stuff. One particularly cool item is a photostat of a survey of Biddeford which was done in 1795. The original map is located at the Massachusetts State Archives in Boston.

  1. Thanks for posting this map, Renee. It’s great! I’ve never seen it and I’d like you to know that the “Little-Falls” plantation you see in the north direction is HOLLIS! Hollis was all of Little Falls until 1854 when the southern portion decided that they did not receive full representation and became “Dayton”.
