Sanborn Fire Insurance Maps
Brattleboro, VT
Remarkably detailed maps of Brattleboro were made in the late 1800s - early 1900s for the purposes of fire insurance.  The maps show details of building construction in the built-up areas of the village - with special attention to industrial sites.  The original maps are rare - they were not mass-produced and few copies survive.  We have acquired color scans and photographs from copies at the Library of Congress and other repositories. 
The first page of each set has an elaborate title. Here is the 1925 title to the 14 sheets of that year.  To the right is a detail of part of the downtown area in 1925.

We are pleased to make color copies of these "Sanborn" maps available in a convenient form for the first time since their publication a century ago. The links below will lead you to some low-resolution copies.
Because some of these are digital photographs and not scans, you may not be able to read the smallest text..
