Item Information

Title:
The city of Richmond, Indiana : 1884
Description:
America Transformed: Richmond, Indiana, located on the original National Road near the Indiana-Ohio boundary, provides an example of a midwestern industrial town that was a center of government, commerce, finance, and education. Oriented with east at the top, this bird's-eye view places the White Water River and the railroad crossing in the foreground. The map's directory lists 29 industrial enterprises. Many local factories manufactured farm implements and processed agricultural produce. The largest companies produced threshing machines, grain drillers, and mowers, while smaller plants made crackers, baking powder, and linseed oil. Others built non-agricultural goods, such as pianos, caskets, boilers, and even map cases.
