Summary
Barber and Howe's collaboration, originally published in 1841, opens with a general history of the state, followed by the details of each town, arranged alphabetically by county, then town, then city or village. Entries contain geographical and architectural descriptions, original Native American place names, political and religious history, population statistics, and interesting anecdotes about the activities of certain residents. Generously illustrated with Barber's fine engravings and often accompanied by a verbal description of his impressions of the scene
