Description

The Map Collection contains 135 maps of New Haven and Connecticut, dating roughly from the late 1800's to the early 2000's. We have reproduced a sample of some of the earlier maps. For the larger items, we took several photos and combined them using photo editing software. Although we edited the composites, alignment errors may still exist.
