View of Leominster, Worcester County, M.A., 1886 / drawn & published by L. R. Burleigh.

This panoramic print of Leominster, Massachusetts was drawn and published by L. R. Burleigh in 1886. Leominster was incorporated as a town in 1740 along the Nashua River. The surrounding area contained family farms, growing fields of grain and orchards of fruit.

Johnny Appleseed was born in Leominster in 1774. By that time the town’s manufacturing interests were turning towards the production of plastic. Several early plastics manufacturers and related industries emerged in Leominster in the late 1700's.

The first celluloid was developed in Leominster by John Wesley Hyatt, involving heated nitrates mixed with animal horns and hooves and molded to shape combs and other items. Throughout the 1800's, Leominster plastic manufactories were busy producing combs, glasses frames, buttons and toys of all kinds.

The illustration includes labeled roads, buildings and railroad routes. There are inset illustrations of a view of the Common as it was in 1840 and a view of Square looking south, 1886.
