Lake Champlain Historic Maps- Unframed Set of 6
We're proud to introduce a set of unframed classic maps of the Lake Champlain Valley (shown here with three of the six maps in the full set) When displayed on a wall, all six maps display the lake region as charted in 1857, by H.F. Walling. The details are riveting...named home sites and businesses, churches, landmarks and early roads, topography, rivers and wetlands. In 1857, H.F. Walling completed his Map of Vermont, actually 12 separate maps, each one approximately 25 square feet! Every road in the state had been travelled by representatives of Mr. Walling. They carried compasses and an early version of the car odometer to measure the distance. Home-owners were queried, points of interest noted. The original maps were printed, then hand-colored and sold by county, mounted upon wooden rollers. Our set of lake maps, taken from 3 counties, is designed to be mounted on your living room or office wall, from top to bottom. The six maps require approximately 6 feet of vertical wall space for mounting. Each one is 11" high x17" wide. Each map faithfully reproduces the original hand colored plates.
