PHA collections include historic maps of Peacham from its earliest settlement. We are making several digitized maps available on this web site. They  present a wealth of information about Peacham in the 19th century. The digitized maps include the manuscript map of Peacham lotting plans that show the division of land among the pioneer settlers in early 1800’s. Two of the maps were printed in gazetteers of Caledonia County. The maps of the 12 school districts in 1875 show not only the location of the one-room schoolhouses but also names of property owners in 1875.

  The list of available digitized maps includes:

 Peacham Lotting Plans      Originally prepared by David Martin and then recopied in 1912 and again in 1926. Original map is held by the Vermont State Archives.
