This excerpt shows the Rutland area in 1796. Maps of this early
period show only a few details. The roads shown are the main roads, and
the mill sites - here identified by owner's name - are presumably the
largest in the town. The date beneath the town name is the town's
charter date - when the town was first created as such. Note the error
on Killington Peak - today we know that Mt. Mansfield is the highest
summit in Vermont.
