1891 Zoomable Map of Hackensack
« on: December 08, 2013, 07:20:11 AM »
This fantastic map shows every detail of Hackensack, the surrounding areas, and the Hackensack Meadowlands in 1891.  Forwarded to me by Eric Martindale, who found this "Hackensack" map hiding in NEWARK archives. It even shows woods, open marshes, and cedar swamps.

1891 was just a few years before the 3 final border changes to Hackensack: SW portion of Hackensack was secured from Lodi Township, Fairmount was added to the Hackensack Improvement Commission, and the extreme SE tip was lost to Little Ferry.
