Any idea what year the map was made ? My little town of Wolcott, hadn’t popped up yet.

Sorry, I don't. But I can tell you that stagecoaches were running from 1783 to 1850.

The Southwick jog (aka "the notch") wasn't formalized until 1801 so if the map is accurate, it would be dated to before that point.

It's from 1933, part of the lead up to the Tercentenary of the state. Some of the omissions are odd but I think the lack of town-by-town resolution is for the sake of clarity.

Ah… before 1821… my major city… Bridgeport hasn’t popped up yet either

Someone mentioned southington is no where to be found… founded 1779 so before then I assume
