Collection Overview

This collection contains wall maps, city plans, and atlas sheets published between 1830-1890, a period when Burlington became the largest city in Vermont and a center of commerce and industry on Lake Champlain. The earlier maps show the village and rural sections of the town of Burlington. Later maps cover the City of Burlington, which was established in 1865 when the rural areas were set off to create the town of South Burlington. Maps of the neighboring village of Winooski are also included in the collection. The maps show streets, buildings and lots, building owners’ names and functions, parks, cemeteries, wards, railroads, and some natural features. Some of the maps include illustrations of prominent buildings and business directories.
