Beginning with the 1872 illustrated map of Saratoga by R.F. Dearborn, and the 1880 map of Woodlawn Park—the infamous residence of Mr. Henry Hilton and the current location of Skidmore College—the Saratoga Maps Collection offers a rich insight into the history of Skidmore, Saratoga Springs, and Saratoga County. This collection spans almost 100 years, providing views of the area from different time periods and perspectives.
