Historic Map - Cortland, NY - 1894

Cortland, N.Y.

Reproduction bird's-eye view map of Cortland, New York, published by Burleigh Litho. Co. in 1894. Cortland was settled in the late 1700's on land within the Central New York Military Tract, named after the state's first Lieutenant Governor Pierre Van Cortlandt.

In 1868, the State Normal School was completed. The main brick building was three stories high with a Mansard roof and a sixty-four foot high dome at the center that was a gymnasium. The school is now the State University of New York at Cortland. In 1875, William Brockway established his carriage works in Cortland. Later his son George would convert the factory to build his famous Brockway trucks. Cortland's leading industry at the time this map was published was the production of wire hardware cloth for window and door screens by the Wickwire Brothers Mill.

This panoramic map from 1894 includes buildings, railway routes and clearly labeled street names.
