George Brackett's map of Newton shows meetinghouses, roadways, bridges, churches, schools, and ponds. It also lists bordering towns such as Brookline, Brighton, Watertown, Waltham, Weston, Needham, Dedham, and Roxbury. The Charles River is a prominent feature of the map, as are the many bridge crossings. Brackett's map also records land and property owners.
