"Plan of the Town of Deerfield"

Hoyt's map carefully marks the boundaries of the town, shows the network of roads, and names the ferries across the Deerfield and Connecticut Rivers. At this time no bridges existed, and the Old Albany Road west of the village of Deerfield continues across the river at a ford or shallow spot in the river. The map also notes the locations of mills, and differentiates their type by symbols. The village of Deerfield appears as the sole settlement, although numerous outlying houses and farms existed at this time. Hoyt's pictorial representation of hills to the east and west dominate the landscape and give an impression of rugged terrain.
