Providence Purchase Lands (RI)


I am not quite sure of the exact source for these interesting drawings from Greater Rhode Island Roaming, accompanied by this text:

“Confluence of the Ponaganset River and the Moswansicut River - Over the years ... via historical maps ... starting with the Providence Purchase Lands map by George Matteson.

I was mesmerized by the Providence Purchase Land map. Numerous spring locations, Indian paths, cornfields, quarry and burial site. Plus, homestead locations and plot sizes. Crazy detail!! The amount of research and effort required to build this map would BLOW.MY.MIND! 🙂

Anywho, you'll probably have to save the image onto your computer to get the best detail.”
