The Massachusetts Historical Society continues to offer new digital resources on the Bay State with this fine collection of 104 unique and rare manuscript and printed maps. Support for this digitization project came from the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS), and visitors will want to start by looking through Clough's 1798 Boston Atlases. Samuel Chester Clough spent a good deal of his life compiling information about property owners during the late 17th and 18th centuries, and he subsequently created 12 oversize maps of Boston, along with an oversize atlas depicting Boston property owners in 1798. These maps are an invaluable resource for historians and geographers, and visitors will want to also click on the "List of Maps" to look over all the maps in this collection.
