1876 Walker Map of Norwood, Hillsdale & the Palisade Land Co.,New Jersey
Description: Maps of Norwood (plate 107), the property of the Palisade Land Co. (plates 108-109), and Hillsdale, NJ, showing property boundaries and owner names. Notable too is that depiction of school district boundaries-- even at this early date New Jersey schools were being highlighted in the context of property (and presumably property values), a practice that continues to this day. Published in Walker & Pease' exquisite centennial "topographical, illustrated, historical, descriptive" Atlas of Bergen County, New Jersey, 1876. Note, image above represents the verso and recto (front and back) of a single sheet of paper.
