Map or Atlas

Plat of Sheboygan Wisconsin


This is a plat map of Sheboygan showing the Sheboygan River and Lake Michigan. Streets are labeled and plats are numbered in quadrants. Some points of interest such as "Public Square" and "Ellis Tract." are also labeled. An inset map on the bottom right shows "Part of Township 15 North of Range 23 East". The top of the map reads: "The Town of SHEBOYGAN situated at the mouth of Sheboygan River on the West Side of Lake Michigan about 50 Miles north of Milwaukie and 65 miles south of Green Bay, and 33 miles due east from the Town of Fond du lac at the head of Lake Winnebago. The Sheboygan River is a large Stream and is capable of being made the best Harbour on Lake Michigan. The Town and adjoining country is selling very rapidly by Eastern Farmers and Merchants. Persons by referring to the map of the Territory of Wisconsin will perceive at once the great advantages it has over almost any other point, West of Lake Michigan."
