In addition to providing a detailed depiction of the geography of a location, United States Government Survey maps furnish historical information. This comes in the form of locating features such as old cemeteries, or buildings that no longer serve the purpose that they once did. In addition, place names remind us of the past. For example, 17th century settler Robert Poag lives on in the name Pogue's Hole Rd., and although the enclosure of the south meadows no longer exists, the area is still called The Bars.
