Hackettstown Historic Map 1883

Here are some of the places Tillie Smith walked past while living and working in Hackettstown: Centenary (where she worked in 1886), Flock Building (where she window shopped), Post Office (a pivotal place on her last night alive), Union Cemetery (where she is buried, as is Titus), and Trinity Methodist Church (another key location on her last night). You can see the streets as they are mentioned in the book, including Sharp St where James Titus lived. You can even follow her footsteps on this map from the time she left work on April 8 at Centenary until she returned, never making it back inside the building. Almost all of these buildings still exist, though with different businesses.
