HISTORIC MAPS

Original lotting plan, 1777

Plan of the town of Vernon copied from the original survey of Phineas Munn A.D. 1777 at the request of Stebbins. Drawn by C.A. Hines A.D. Note: Vernon was originally (1672) part of Northfield Mass. then (1736) Fall Town (Fallstown) Mass. Hinsdale was created by a New Hampshire grant in 1753. Hinsdale was on both sides of the Connecticut River, including all of Vernon. With the separation of Vermont from New Hampshire, Hinsdale, Vermont and Hinsdale, N.H. were separate towns facing each other across the river. Hinsdale, Vermont was renamed Vernon in 1802. This map shows a portion of the 1753 New Hampshire grant.
