In other board action, the Damascus Historical Society presented a fully framed, large map of Wayne County that has an 1860 date on it from a mapping company in Philadelphia.
The map also has inserts of small scenes of various communities in the county.
“This is a local treasure that should be seen by the public,” said Davis Dexter, president of the Damascus Historical Society. “We are not giving this to you, but asking that you hang it in your offices here.”
