This sheet includes the first survey done by the United States Geological Survey for the Irasburg 15-minute quadrangle. The map sheet is an original 1971 USGS print in good condition.
The Irasburg 15-minute map shows all roads, paths, towns, railroads, rivers, creeks, elevation contour lines, public land survey lines, county, state, and other administrative boundaries, and structures (houses, churches, schools, barns, cabins, etc.) as they existed at the time of the survey in 1923.
The Irasburg map was surveyed before aerial photography methods were widely used in map data gathering. It was drawn by Geological Survey cartographers based on plane table field survey information as well as information gathered from local residents in the area. It displays the remarkable abilities of the early USGS map makers, who placed a strong emphasis on creating complete, accurate, and cartographically appealing maps.
Maps from the 15-minute series for the continental United States are no longer produced or printed by the USGS and original prints are becoming increasingly difficult to find. They are a valuable historical record for an area, as they contain many placenames and features that have been dropped from more recent maps.MAP DETAILS Title Irasburg State Vermont Series 15-minute Surveyed 1923 Field Survey Edition 1953 Revision 1953 Printed 1971 Scale 1:62500 Contour Interval 20 Foot Sheet Dimensions 16.5 x 20 inches Coverage Area Roughly 14 x 16 miles SHEET CONDITION Overall Condition GOOD Sheet Notes lightly handled, horizontal and vertical midline folds Map Area no wear, no markings Collar Area no edge wear or tears, no markings, no blemishes PLACENAMES Depending on map series and survey date, all of the features listed below may not be shown on this map.
