Historic Maps of Jamaica Plain

These maps were produced primarily for the fire insurance industry. They show building footprints and detail such as building material, function, owner, driveways, and street address. Also shown are lot lines, street widths, pipes, railroad lines, and bodies of water. Sanborn, Hopkins, Bromley, Phoenix, and other companies produced fire Insurance maps. The earliest fire insurance map of Boston appeared in 1867.



The 1858 map is an inset from a map of Suffolk County and appears here courtesy of the Boston Public Library.
