Geeky Teacher Map Decoration

We are history buffs, and since moving to Terre Hill we have been learning a little about the history of this quaint little borough.  We first saw this reproduction map in our cute little neighborhood restaurant, and then Jeff found a larger one at quite a reasonable price online.   The original map was drawn in 1894, while our house was being built.  We can actually find our home on there, along with two public schools, a Mennonite church (which sadly is no longer in existence), a band hall, and several cigar factories.  Jeff made this lovely mission-style frame for it, and it now adorns our living room where we can learn a little history whenever we would like to do so.
