Historical Maps

The historical maps found on this series of pages are primarily from the Provincial Archives of New Brunswick (PANB). The Provincial Archives building has a large holding of historical maps (and other types of historical documents) stored in many different collections. The historical maps are found on microfilm, microfiche, and a few still exist as paper maps. The maps used for this project were converted to digital format using the scanner at the archives building.

Maps from PANB collections you will find on these pages include:

  • Crown Lands Maps and Plans
  • House of Assembly
  • Land Grants Plan Books
  • 50 Chain Series
  • Additional maps/images used in this series of pages come from the Department of Natural Resources, Public Services, the New Brunswick Museum, as well as the Harriet Irving Library at the University of New Brunswick.

    You'll find information about WHY Historical Maps are a valuable resource for learning about a locations past activities, digital images of the maps, and the catalog ID at PANB. You can go to PANB to view the original historical scans by requesting them via their catalog ID.

    On the next five pages, you'll find the historical maps, historical information, and some questions to answer.

    When you correctly answer all the questions on a page you will receive a puzzle piece and a passkey.

    Once you've collected all five puzzle pieces and passkeys, head over to the Historical Puzzles page to complete the next puzzle.
