About

View of Cheshire, Connecticut, 1882. Original lithograph was drawn and published by O. H. Bailey & Co. , a prominent 19th century map maker. The map shows a bird’s eye view of the town as it used to be, including street names and old landmarks.  Beautifully colored historic map of Cheshire, CT in 1882. In 1840, a local woman known as "Jinny" discovered unusual stones in her yard. The stones turned out to be deposits of barium sulphate, or barytes, a mineral used in the manufacturing of paint, glass and rubber products. Barium sulphate was mined in Cheshire for the next 40 years, bringing a wave of immigration to the town from miners of the Cornwall, England mining district. Oakley Hoopes Baily ( 1843 - 1947 ) was a prominent map artist and publisher who drew 374 maps in his life time. This historic print has some damage on mid and lower right side as can be seen in the photos otherwise in good condition with fine hand coloring.      Description of details:   Six inset images  below the town include: Residence of Rev.
