This reproduction bird's-eye view map of Stillwater, New York was published by Lucien R. Burleigh in 1889. Stillwater is a town in Saratoga County on the Hudson River. After a dam was created on the river in the 1870s several mills were established in Stillwater including a paper mill operated by Gardner Howland & Sons, a straw board mill run by D. & W. Pemble, a hosiery mill operated by Ephraim Newland and a knitting mill managed by Newland & Denison. The map shows Stillwater just before its dry dock and boat yard were added.
This panoramic map from 1889 shows buildings, railroad route, labeled streets and Champlain Canal.
