1861 Geological VT State map  
This was the first Geological map made of the state of Vermont. It was put together using information from the the first Geolocial Survey of Vermont, which had been conducted for several years prior to 1861. Charles H. Hitchcock was at that time the assistant to the Vermont State Geologist; his father Edward Hitchcock.
The map shows the details of Vermontís rocks, soils, metals, and minerals. Charles Hitchcock later served as State Geologist for Maine and then New Hampshire, and was one of the founders of the Geological Society of America.
