Old State Maps of NH - Closeup of 1761 Blanchard & Langdon
These excerpts from the Paper Edition of the 1761 map show the Vermont-New Hampshire border area. We provide a matching modern map on each page to help you understand the old map. The Connecticut River is the curved north-south line in the middle of each map.  Note that in 1761 there was very little settlement in Vermont. Many towns here have their original town names. Thomlinson in Vermont is now Grafton. Newton, New Hampshire is now known as Alstead. No. 6 and No. 7 (just above Mt. Monadnock) are now Nelson and Stoddard, NH.

At the top left is the entry "This way Captives have been carried by the Indians".  Just above that line is the beginning of the Crown Point Military Road, built in 1759 (the 1757 manuscript map on the CDROM does not show this road) to connect Fort No. 4 (see map) with Lake Champlain. Fort Dummer in Brattleboro is also seen on this map.
