Click on the image to view and download the full-size Ipswich birds eye map, created by George Norris in 1893. The Ipswich River flows out to sea in the upper section of the map, Topsfield Road is in the lower right, and High Street sits below the hillside on the left. The 18″ x 24″ map is highly detailed and shows the shape and size of each house in town.

In this detail from the 1893 Birdseye Map of Ipswich, the business section of Central street is circled. These buildings burned down one year later.
