The town of Greenfield, Massachusetts, which included Gill, Massachusetts was set off from the mother town, Deerfield, in 1753. Gill then split off from Greenfield in the 19th century. When Franklin County was created from the Old Hampshire County in 1811, Greenfield with its location on three rivers (Deerfield, Connecticut, and Green), had grown significantly from its 18th century beginnings and it became the county seat. The Beers map includes physical features and names many of the major retail and manufacturing establishments present in the second half of the 19th century.
