Map of Star Island

I love maps- so it doesn’t take much for me to want to post a map.

The Rye Historical Society is working on an inventory of our buildings on Star Island.  They stopped by Vaughn today to get information about the buildings and locations.  I just sent them this map along with information about the individual buildings.

I like that this map is a topographical map first created in 1916.  It was later revised in October, 1979 by Thomas Mansfield, revised again in April 2006, and another revision by Bruce Parsons in March of 2009.  It helps to illustrate that maps can be used for many different purposes, and they relay a lot of information quickly.

You can click on the map and it will enlarge, if you click again it will zoom to be more readable.
