1940 Midcape Highway Study Plan

“Plan used to develop Woodlot Lines and Titles on Proposed State Highway.”

Published by MacNeill & Fitch c. 1940 and donated to the Barnstable County Registry of Deeds. Sheets 1 and 2, provided here, are for the plan of the road through Sandwich and Barnstable. This is the road that eventually became US 6 from the Sagamore Bridge to Provincetown, MA. The map was curiously drawn with north toward the bottom of the page, but there is no compass rose on the sheet to indicate so.

The map is made available in one file at full resolution. If you have trouble viewing the photos in the Google’s Chrome browser, try Firefox or Internet Explorer.
