These maps are from an 1870 Atlas of Worcester County, MA. It was published by F.W. Beers & Co. of New York in 1870. The maps are drawn from actual surveys by and under the direction of F.W. Beers assisted by Geo. P. Sanford and others. These maps are typically hand-colored and highly detailed, showing numerous buildings that are often identified by the name of the owner or proprietor. If you are looking for a particular name, feel free to ask. These single page maps measure 15 ½ by 12 ¾ inches. These are two of many maps of a disbound Worcester County atlas that I am selling on .

West Upton was located at the current intersection of Main St and Hartford Ave (a hotel is at the junction, called the “West Upton Hotel”, Cook, J.W. Proprietor) and extended north past Glen Ave to where the Main St and Williams St split at the bottom of the pond. The Upton Business Notices on this page contains ~45 names.

This page has an additional Upton Business Directory. The inset map of Hopedale shows the dwellings and point of interest along the Hopedale Rd. It extends from Freedom St down to the Main St (now called Mendon St) with Hopedale Pond in the north and the Mill River running prominently on the west side of town. The Unitarian Church was and still stands in the same place, the G. Draper School stood on land bordered by Freedom St, Hopedale St, and High St (now Prospect St?). The North Milford map, shows the dwellings and pints of interest along Purchase St from Wales St in the north to just north of the current Louisa Lake.
Map conditions: mild tanning around perimeters, small tear in margin where plate was bound to atlas (does not extend into the map area) otherwise excellent.
