    The Appalachian Mountain Club (AMC), an organization of outdoor enthusiasts, was founded in Boston in 1876. Charles Eliot was an early member of the Club, and in 1890 was elected Councilor of Topography – the same year he petitioned his fellow members to discuss the notion of The Trustees of Public Reservations. The map displayed here was published under Eliot's guidance, and used topographic maps produced by government agencies to illustrate the varied terrain surrounding Boston. Eliot and the AMC continued with their conservation efforts, and in 1892 established the Metropolitan Park Commission, the nation's first regional park system. Shows roads, streets and railroads.
