The Historical Commission is fortunate to have access to these digitized versions of the oldest maps of Cape Cod and New England anywhere in the world and we are proud to offer them here.
These files are very large, requiring over a minute to download, even with a high-speed connection. For best results, save the files to your hard drive and view them with your operating system’s photo viewer. Dial-up connections may be too slow to effectively use these products.
