Johnson Maps, Surveys and Drawings Now Available Online

Date: 
Monday, September 16, 2019

The UVM Libraries Center for Digital Initiatives launched the John Johnson Collection this fall. The collection includes 168 maps, surveys and architectural drawings selected from the John Johnson Papers. The versatile Johnson (1771-1842) was a prominent surveyor, mapmaker, builder and engineer who worked primarily in northern Vermont. The collection includes town and lot maps as well as plans and drawings for buildings, bridges, and other structures. Johnson’s surveys played an important role in land development during the early years of Euro-American settlement in Vermont. As historian Robert McCullough has noted, Johnson’s plans and drawings provide a unique historical record of building projects that more typically involved informal agreements. The carefully inked maps and drawings are sometimes enhanced with watercolors.
