Through the collaborative efforts of the Trescott, Maine Historical Society and Moon River Press a new edition, carefully reprinted from the original, has just been released and is available for sale as a fund raiser at many local Washington County libraries and historical societies, or may be purchased directly from the publisher.
This atlas, an exact copy of the 1881 edition, is reproduced in an easy-to-handle 11” x 12 ½" format, digitally imaged on heavy, acid-free archival-quality paper. The maps identify every property owner by name, and show the precise locations of homesteads, businesses, roads, schools, churches, mills and cemeteries in those plantations, towns and villages that were inhabited by 1880. The names on each of the eighty-seven maps, no matter how small they appeared in the original, are reproduced in this edition with state-of-the-art clarity.
Added to the new atlas, by utilizing pages that were left blank in the original, are the complete 1790 Census for Washington County (the first U.S. Census), and the evaluation of all estates that were assessed and on file in the county between 1860 and 1892, listed town by town.
