1874 Witmer Map
This is the earliest map showing Charlestown detail that I own and the only one I have seen that shows the mill race leading from the mill pond to the woolen factory, and then on back into Pickering Creek. That's Church Rd. coming in from the top left edge, and Charlestown Rd. extending from the bottom left to the right edge.
Also note the Charlestown Presb. Church and Amity School, the current location of the Charlestown Playschool. The double dotted line leading from the woolen factory to the right is the driveway to Broadwater Farm. Note too the Methodist Church and the store and Post Office. The mill, store and Post Office and the church are featured elsewhere in this section of The Early Days.
