A Map of St Lawrence County, New York from actual surveys by AE Rogerson, published by JB Shields, Philadephia in 1858 has been digitized and is now available for purchase from the St Lawrence County Historical Association for the first time.
David Martin of Ogdensburg digitally scanned and produced the 1858 map, which is now available for purchase on disc only at the SLCHA for just $25 (plus tax).
The Rogerson map is a large wall map of the county that was used by school teachers, lawyers, newspapermen and county officials in the 2nd half of the 19th century. It shows all the towns and villages, rivers and ponds, roads and railroads, businesses, schools, homeowners, and landowners in the county. Pictures of buildings from around the county adorn the margins of the map, as well as diagrams of the villages and other data of historic interest.
The map is a tremendous resource for local history and genealogy research, and provides valuable information on development in the county immediately prior to the Civil War.
