Abstract (& Historical Note)

The map, which appears opposite the title page of the work, is part of a history of Saratoga Springs and Ballston Spa published in book form in 1880, but (as the dedication notes) originally appearing in the Saratogian, Saratoga Springs' daily newspaper, in 1874-5. The author, Stone, dedicates his work to the Honorable Charles S. Lester, a judge, and signs himself a "friend and former townsman." The book includes memories, history, and focuses on a range of topic, from graveyards to historical personages, schools, debating clubs, the histories of the Baptist and Presbyterian churches, and an 1832 cholera epidemic.

This map is enclosed by Circular Street and Congress street and shows only Congress Park itself. It lists references including Congress Spring, Reservoir, Drinking Fountain, Columbian Spring, Music Pavilion, Cafe, Music Platform, Main Entrance, and Circular St. Entrance
