The Old Map of Maine is a representation of the state that was at first settled by the French and then later by the English. Originally appearing in the Mitchell Atlas, this 16 x 20 framed Old Map of Maine traces Maine's borders shortly after it "declared independence" from Massachusetts.
"The Pine Tree State" has always been contested land and has been inhabited by Native Americans, the French, and the English throughout history. While most "Mainers" as they are called, speak English at home and are of English descent, Maine has a very high number of French Americans and many Acadians. The Old Map of Maine shows the state's proximity to Canada, where French is spoken in these neighboring provinces.
Whether they are from Augusta, Portland, or anywhere in between, our Old Map of Maine is the perfect gift for a resident of Maine who is proud of either their French or English heritage (or both!). The clean framing is sure to accent any room.
Framed in a beautiful real wood frame that is approximately 1” wide and ½” thick, old state maps come in various sizes and are carefully packed for delivery.
As this item is a true facsimile of an actual old map there may be slight imperfections which only add to its authenticity.
Please allow 3 - 5 working days for individual print production and hand-framing of the item in addition to shipping time.
