This is a c. 1895 city plan or map of Dartmouth, Massachusetts. Oriented toward the east, Dartmouth is bordered by Freetown and Fall River on the left, New Bedford on the top, Westport along the bottom, and Buzzards Bay on the right. Innumerable houses, each bearing their resident's name, appear throughout and line the town's many streets, some of which are unlabeled. Post offices mark several neighborhoods, while others, like Bayview, Nonquitt, Faunces Corner, and Turner's Mill, are identified. Rivers, lakes, bays, points, and other physical features throughout the area are also illustrated. The Fall River Branch of the New York, New Haven, and Hartford Railroad crosses through town and stops at the Westport Factory Station and the North Dartmouth Station. The electric trolley line between Fall River and New Bedford appears as well, labeled here as 'Electric Railroad' runs just to the south of the Fall River Branch and operated from the mid-1890s until 1935 when the service was replaced by buses.
Publication History and CensusAs this map is undated and unsigned, we have been unable to trace any other known examples. To date the map, we guesstimated based on the presence of the electric railroad between Fall River and New Bedford.
