Beers Atlas of 1875

A few images from the treasure trove that is Beers 1875 Atlas of Ulster County, NY.

The entire atlas has been digitized by Ulster County and others. The atlas contains demographic information for each town; maps with property owners’ names; sites of hamlets, schools, churchs and hotels long gone and some still existing; and etching and drawings of important churches, residences, and business throughout the county. The artwork alone is worth an internet search, but the history will grab you, too. Take the kids, take an 1875 Beers map and explore your space.
