Map of Alexandria

Image caption

This 1798 map of the town of Alexandria is one of the earliest maps in the Kelly Adirondack Center Map Collection. The names of all of the locations on this map have European origins. The earliest maps with these types of alterations contribute to the erasure of Haudenosaunee culture because these maps become the basis for newer maps. Since these names were changed so early on, the European names remain today.
