Title

Sketch Map of Letchworth Park

Description

Executive Secretary of the American Scenic and Historic Preservation Society created map immediately following William P. Letchworth's gift of his Glen Iris estate to New York. It reflected "certain new drives designed to give greater accessibility to points of vantage, and certain areas designed for deforestation." The park boundaries as of 1908 are denoted.

Numbered points on the map include well-known attractions, like Letchworth's home and the Indian Council House," but there are also more obscure features like an old mill site, a cemetery, farms with the park borders, and mineral springs.
