View of Unionville, Conn.

Reproduction bird's-eye view of the community known as Unionville, CT, published by O. H. Bailey in 1878. Located along a bend in the Farmington River, Unionville was considered good farming by early settlers. Several factories would begin harnessing water power from the river to run their operations. Miss Porter's nearby school for girls was established in 1843 by educational reformer Sarah Porter. It has since been a springboard for such illustrious alumni as Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis and Lilly Pulitzer.

The map features bottom border illustrations of Residence of Sam'l Frisbie, The Cowels Hardware Co., Union Nut Co., Cowles Paper Co., Delaney & Munson Mfg. Co. and Res. of A. S. Upson. The map features clearly labeled street names with lively scenes of railroad, carriage, river and pedestrian traffic.
