Biographical Harland R. (Fred) Horton (1886-1975) owned his own surveying business, working out of his home office in Massena, NY. Much of his work was done in the Massena, Lousiville, Norfolk area of St. Lawrence County as well as areas of eastern Franklin County.

Scope and Content This collection consists of about 150 maps of neighborhoods, projects, developments and individual properties Mr. Horton surveyed primarily in the 1920s – 1960s. Locations of the surveys include the town and village of Massena, and the towns and villages of Nicholville, Fort Covington, Norfolk, Winthrop, Brasher, Helena, Lawrence, Hogansburg, Brushton, Bombay, Madrid, Malone and Waddington, including surveys of lands for power transmission lines developed in early to mid-20th century.. Also included in the collection are a number of drawings related to individual study Mr. Horton made, apparently through correspondence courses and a few farm and residential building and architectural drawings.

Provenance Purchased from Tom Jenison in August 2017
