Interactive River Map

Our 2015 summer intern Ellie Wachtel, a Williams College student, collated and connected over 50 detailed insurance maps from 1942 which feature every house and businesses in existence during the early 1940s. Along with much research reading old newspapers at the North Adams library, she digitized these maps and created an informative, historical, interactive map of North Adams.

This interactive map reveals interesting, historical facts and photos highlighting the history of North Adams and its Hoosic River.
