    This map, taken from Abijah Marvins's History of Lancaster, shows some of the early roads and bridges on the Nashua. Long ago, when the town's center was on the Old Common, to head north, travelers took a long bridge across the floodplain from Five Corners to the large curve in Neck Road. Farther north, at Lane's Crossing (where Harvard and Seven Bridge Roads cross), the traveler could take the Post Road west toward Brattleborough, Vermont, or continue north up Harvard Road. This map also shows the Neck area (across the upper part of the Y made by the river lines above). This long plateau of land sloping gently down to the river on both sides extends northward from the Meeting of the Waters to the southern base of Ponakin Hill (not shown on this map). All of Lancaster Center is on the Neck. Title from item or accompanying materials. Date supplied by cataloger. Dr. Geraldine I. Grout.
