This is the wall map of Dublin, New Hampshire frequently cited as the antique wall map of the town. However, as the title of this map indicates, it is a 20th century update of the 19th century survey of Thomas Fisk, (Please see elsewhere on my web site for the listing). Perhaps the most distinctive feature of the Wadsworth map is the updated survey record of Harrisville as it was set off from Dublin along the northern town line. The Wadsworth survey also records more of Mt. Monadnock below the Dublin town line to the south. The other new features are a renaming of Centre Pond as Monadnock Lake.
Dublin in 1906 also reflects new technology, namely electricity. There are several reservoirs identified on Wadsworth's map, including the Dublin Electric Co. Reservoir, the Knight Reservoir and the Howe Reservoir. Roads are shown, and house locations indicated by a symbolic small square. Lakes are labeled and colored blue. Monadnock is shown with hachures and colored brown.
Taken as a pair, the Thomas Fisk wall map of 1855 and the Samuel Wadsworth wall map of 1906 present a graphic history of the settlement and growth of Dublin, New Hampshire and its most distinctive feature, the great Mount Monadnock.
