Walton, N.Y. 1887. Drawn & published by L. R. Burleigh. Burleigh Litho. Establishment.

This bird's-eye view map of Walton, New York was published by Lucien R. Burleigh in 1887. Walton is a town in the western Catskill Mountains on the Delaware River. It was named after William Walton Jr., a land patentee of King George and founding member of the Chamber of Commerce of the State of New York. Although Walton received this 22,000 acre land grant from the King of England, when the Revolutionary War began, he took a bold position supporting the colonies, thus alienating himself from many. Following the Revolution the town of Walton was formed by the river as a dairy farm community. Weed's Bridge was built in 1796 and linked Ulster and Otsego Counties, providing an important path for the Kingston mail route.

This panoramic map from 1887 shows buildings, railroad routes and clearly labeled streets.
