Item Information

Title:
[Map of W. Dall's lots in Athens County, Washington County, and Gallia County, Ohio]
Description:
America Transformed: This small manuscript map served as a personal record of one individual’s land holdings. It highlights the grid pattern that was characteristic of public land surveys initiated by the Land Ordinance of 1785. These townships were part of the Ohio Company’s purchases in southeastern Ohio. This private land company, composed of Boston investors, established Marietta as the first Euro-American settlement in the Northwest Territory. The map noted that William Dall owned five parcels of land in four townships, totaling over 900 acres.
