1780 Romans VT State map detail 
This hand-colored map of Vermont is part of the General Atlas of the World, published in 1814 by Matthew Carey of Philadelphia.  The author, Amos Doolittle, was a prolific early map maker.

This is a later edition of the map first issued by the Doolittle-Carey team in 1795.  Like many maps included in atlases, this one is slightly out of date.  We note, for instance, that the town of Dummerston is called "Fulham" on this map.  This nonmenclature may have been accurate when it appeared in the 1795 edition of the atlas, but the permanant change to the name "Dummerston" occured shortly thereafter.

The most notable features of this map are the many old Vermont town names, especially in the area we now call the "Northeast Kingdom", where we see towns such as Billymead, Random, Navy, and Carthage.  In addtion a few major roads are shown, such as the "Hazen Road", also known as the Bayley-Hazen Military Road
