Historical Mapping

Historical Mapping

One of BTHS’s ongoing projects is to use the memories of our older residents to map out the locations of former sites of interest. This includes homesteads, businesses, schools, and other places of historical significance. Eventually, we will have a series of town maps showing the locations of similar sites available as a reference to historians, researchers, and the curious. Sometimes it’s amazing to find out where – and what – used to be located nearby!

If you or someone you know has a memory of a location that might be of historical significance, please let us know! We would love to add your memories to our collection!

Twenty (20) one-room schoolhouses are already mapped and on display in the museum. The map of former working farms, as well as the map of all the Town’s businesses (past and present) are almost as complete as we can get them.
