Gallery Copy: This is one of two placemats published by The East Windsor Historical Society in an early effort to raise money and increase the interest of local residents in the history of their town. The East Windsor Historical Society was established in 1965 and the placemats were available by February 1966. This placemat, with a reproduction of a map from Baker & Tilden's 1869 atlas of Hartford County, depicts Warehouse Point, a community in the northwest corner of the town of East Windsor on the Connecticut River.
Description: Placemat map of Warehouse Point in East Windsor, Connecticut, from the town line of Enfield to the north and the Connecticut River to the west. Owned land is denoted with solid boundary lines and labeled with the owner's name and a rectangle representing a building. Below the map to the right is a business reference list. Smaller maps of Windsorville, Broad Brook and District 9 are also shown, with similar indications of property ownership. There is a list of business references for Broad Brook. On the right side of the map are three photographs, one of the Scantic covered bridge and Osborn's Mill Dam, one of the Melrose trolley trestle and railroad station, and the other of the Windsorville Hotel and Louis Smith's meat cart.
