Historic Map - Fall River, MA - 1877

View of Fall River, Bristol County, M.A., 1877 / drawn & published by O. H. Bailey & J. C. Hazen.

This bird’s-eye view print of Fall River, Massachusetts was drawn and published by O. H. Bailey & J. C. Hazen in 1877. The township of Fall River was settled in 1670 along the eastern shore of Mount Hope Bay. The waterways of the area provided ample water-power for the establishment of several textile mills at that location during the 1800's.

The community, served by the Old Colony Railroad, prospered greatly as a result of the mills. The town's deep-water port enabled cotton goods to be shipped easily, and as a result, Fall River mills were able to gain much momentum during the American Civil War.

Granite was also quarried extensively at Fall River and much of the early town was built using it.

The illustration includes labeled streets, buildings, bridges, waterways and railroad route. Port activities of Mount Hope Bay are displayed in the foreground including featured steamers “Bristol” and “Providence”.
