"Middletown, Newport Co. Rhode Island"     

This map was included in D. G. Beers, Atlas of the State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations. From Actual Surveys and Official Records, published in 1870.  Beers' town and county maps are sought after as they are wonderfully detailed local maps showing family homesteads, streets, roads, railroad lines, topographical landmarks and often a "Subscriber Business Directory" index. Inset of "Little Compton Common" and "Adamsville." These maps are terrific historical records of life in 1870 Rhode Island and look wonderful framed and hung.

Hand colored lithograph.
16 1/2 x 13 1/2 inches sheet size
Excellent condition.
