Map
Plan of rivers of Saco and Kennebunk with sea coasts between them, 1731, Map #75
Maine Historical Society, Map

This early manuscript map shows a mill and river features along the Saco and Kennebunk rivers. Scale [1:63360] 1 inch = 1 mile. This map is part of the Pejepscot Proprietors' records. Map # 75 probably assigned later by John McKeen, Clerk to the Company. Early maps of the region now known as Maine often showed the location of mills. Mills which ground flour, or sawmills which processed building materials were the first industries to be established in these wilderness areas. Showing features of rivers was also important because people at that time travelled by river more than is done today.
