This sheet includes the only survey produced by the United States Geological
Survey for the Pultneyville 15-minute quadrangle. The map is an original 1907
USGS print that is 114-year-old years old and in excellent condition.
The Pultneyville 15-minute map shows all roads, paths, towns, railroads,
rivers, creeks, elevation contour lines, public land survey lines, county,
state, and other administrative boundaries as they existed at the time of the
survey in 1898. All known structures (houses, businesses, churches, schools,
barns, cabins, etc) are also shown, with exceptions in some urban areas, where
only landmark buildings may be shown.
The Pultneyville map was field surveyed before aerial photography methods were
widely used in map data gathering. It was drawn by cartographers based on plane
table field survey information as well as information gathered from local
residents in the area. It displays the remarkable abilities of early government
map makers, who placed a strong emphasis on creating complete, accurate, and
cartographically appealing maps.
Maps from the 15-minute series for the continental United States are no longer
produced or printed by the USGS and original prints are becoming increasingly
difficult to find. They are a valuable historical record for an area, as they
contain many placenames and features that have been dropped from more recent
