Scope and Content Note

Barlow's Insurance Surveys were published between circa 1870-1896. The site-specific surveys of industrial properties in the eastern United States and Canada were produced by Nelson Barlow and his chief assistant John Bancroft of New York, NY. The single sheet surveys include a page of text and an isometric view and plan. The surveys describe buildings, special features, and available fire protection. They include notes about the business owners and the goods produced. Updated surveys were produced as the business activities and facilities changed. The 20 Vermont surveys in this collection are photocopies of originals held by the American Textile History Museum (formerly the Merrimack Valley Textile Museum).
