LOCUS OF THE ORIGINAL
Maps & Property Owners
This website contains the 5 map panels for the original locus of the Middlesex Canal that traverse the City of Woburn. Accompanying these maps are tables listing of all the current day properties, their owners, and abutters. The first column in this table (Map Panel) refers to one of the 5 map panels on the map. Within each panel are numbered land parcels (Map Parcel #). This number is just a sequential number assigned to each land parcel and shows up as the 2nd column in the table. The third column (Parcel #) is the actual land parcel number assigned by the City of Woburn Assessor and corresponds to all City of Woburn records regarding that property.
These PROPERTY OWNERS lists contain the Parcels within the 75" Canal Buffer as shown in the NATIONAL REGISTER MAP BOOK of the route of the Old Middlesex Canal in the nine communities, namely; Lowell, Chelmsford, Billerica, Wilmington, Woburn, Winchester, Medford, Somerville and Charlestown.
The PROPERTY OWNERS are indexed by Community, first by a sequential Map Number, then by the corresponding Assessor's Plate and Lot Number followed by the Owner name(s) and mailing address, which will not be the lot address if non-owner occupied.
This mapping was started under a grant from the Massachusetts Historical Commission to the GIS Center of the Metropolitan Area Planning Council, and assisted by the GIS Laboratory of the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. They were completed by Waterfield Design Group (formerly Winchester Engineering Associates) with the assistance of the Northern Middlesex Council of Government, the Mogan Center of the University of Massachusetts in Lowell, the Librarians, Historical Societies, Historical Commissions and various citizens of the nine communities, under the direction of the National Register Committee; Thomas Raphael, Chairman, Middlesex Canal Commission Nolan T. Jones, President, Middlesex Canal Association Susan Keats, Archivist, Middlesex Canal Commission
