Vermont Lotting Plans   - Where are They?

Most Vermont towns have ancient "lotting plans" - maps showing the original land divisions of the late 1700s.
These maps are hard to come by, and are sometimes unknown to local historians and researchers. The original maps and their copies are located in various archives and town halls. This site is intended to help people locate copies of these important early maps.
