Monthly Map Challenge

I am so excited to have learned how to post a map.  I tried once before and it was a bust.  Thank you for this monthly challenge and the directions on how to achieve success.

This is the town I call home. As you can see there is still quite a bit of green, but it is fading fast as more people move into the area. Barre is almost right smack dab in the middle of Massachusetts approximately 60 miles west of Boston.

During the civil war Barre was responsible for supplying the Union Army it’s gunpowder and during the Industrial Revolution was known for producing “Palm Leaf Hats”.  From what I read that was a pretty big thing for farming communities in this area.

About ramblinann

I live in Massachusetts and always have. My family continues to grow with the addition of many grandchildren, who steal my heart every time I see them. Recently I was able to check off an item on my bucket list and earn my Associate Degree in Complementary Healthcare, but usually, I can be found sitting behind the wheel of a big yellow school bus. I love to write, though there seems to be some missing connection between my thoughts and the ability of my fingers to put those thoughts on paper, or the screen in this case.

  1. I love all the green! When I scope out new areas to move to I look for the green on google and tha’s usually where the best homes and people are! I alps liked the history lesson! Palm hats!

    yea, technology is great when it works.

  3. The history is certainly fascinating! If I did a map of where I live there’d probably be a lot of green, we’ve got a lot of farms here…I don’t live on a farm but they’re definitely nearby…except everything must be frozen right now underneath all the snow! 😛
