Hand Drawn Map by Benjamin F. Jones (1847-1915), Circa 1900-1911

Description

This map shows the locations of over 300 Granville homes,  other structures and landmarks, based on Benjamin F. Jones' (1847-1915) research and site explorations. CLICK HERE for more information and photos of Ben Jones.

The original map is 32" square and is in the Mabel Root Henry Historical Museum at the Granville Library. It is scanned here as four quadrants (see below).

USING THESE MAPS:

The first two quadrant images are 1. Northwest, and 2. Southwest Granville.

The second two quadrant images are for 1. Northeast, and 2. Southeast Granville.

The files are in TIFF format and are not enlargeable from this page. However they are downloadable if you want to download  and enlarge a file on your computer or print it.

The Map Key is also provided here. Note that there are two numerical sequences, Part One for WEST of Valley Brook and Part Two for EAST of Valley Brook, so be sure to match your site location reference number to the correct numerical sequence.

The following may help:

Part One (WEST) Reference Numbers:

  • 1-61: COMMENCING AT VALLEY BROOK, WEST TO TOLLAND
  • 62-134: COMMENCING AT HARTLAND
  • 135-156: BLANDFORD: Structures, etc. #157-160 Underwater . . . #170
  • 171-192: SOUTH TO HARTLAND HOLLOW
  • 193-219: AT HARTLAND HOLLOW
  • 220-239: NORTH LANE
  • 240-246: BLANDFORD
Part Two (EAST) Reference Numbers:
  • 1-46: EAST OF VALLEY BROOK 
It appears that the map maker ran out of steam on the Part Two EAST map. Many locations were not numbered but are simply marked with an "X."

Disclaimer: The numbers on the map are not necessarily precise locations. The map scale, roads and landmarks are also general representations. 

Note to Hikers:
Please respect Granville property owners and request permission before exploring on private property.
