This is an early map with the Hudson County name in its title. It reflects some common elements of an earlier map, the Douglass Map of 1841. It shows the full county, but many communities are not yet members of the county at this time although many of them appear on the map as developments.

This map was once a reference map used by the Township (now City) of Hoboken and is severely darkened by age making it difficult to read. It has been scanned and enhanced for usability.

PDF on file. All sectional scans and tiffs, media archive and on disk.
