Full Title: Manuscript map of Billerica, Mass., ca. 1760; Maker: Unidentified; Publisher: Unattributed; Date: circa 1760; Description: This manuscript map of Billerica is rich in detail. The unidentified creator drew the town's borders, listing the locations of stakes, stones, and stumps, as well as different types of trees, such as White Oak, small Birch, Pine Tree, Red Oak, etc. The Concord River is a major landmark on the western portion of the town. Inside the town's boundaries, in pencil, are a series of grids and measurements. Some land is designated for private use, and some public, like the large Billerica Common in the center of the map. Governor John Winthrop was a major land owner in the town, with large plots of land, including a meadow, on both sides of the Billerica Common. ; MHS Digital Image: 5053
