Hague, Warren Co., NY
The roads and other sights
Date Last Updated: 06/07/2007
Below is a version 1910 map of the town of Hague, drafted by Water Watts and approved by R. J. Bolton. The original map had grid-work outlining the parcels of land within the various tracts and contained the outline of the 8 districts within the town. The parcel grid-work and district outlines were digitally removed. The roads were traced with red to enhance clarity.
Below the map are some postcards from Mike De Larm's collection from the early 1900s that show what the town looked like during that timeframe. Postmarks on a large number of the cards let us know the when scene was photographed "prior to". Other postcards have vehicles in the background that are from that timeframe.
The postcards are grouped by road and area:
"Hague Road" adjacent to Lake George, traveling North from the village
"Hague Road" adjacent to Lake George, traveling South from the village
"Graphite Road", traveling West from the village
As you trace the roads on the map using your mouse, you will notice your pointer will change and allow you to view the scene from that point. Currently, this feature works best using Microsoft's Internet Explorer. Remember to click on the "Back" button in your browser to return to this page.
There are a few scenes "just off" the main road - have fun exploring!
