Description: The Carrigain Map of New Hampshire, printed in Philadelphia in 1816, was the first map of the state since 1784 to show town boundaries accurately. It proved useful until the 1850's, when county maps appeared. The map took 13 years to produce, from initial plans in 1803 until production in 1816. The map took its name from Secretary of State Philip Carrigain (1772-1842), who devoted his life to the completion and promotion of the map.
