[p. 71] shown on the map, suggests that at some former time its location had been changed.

Powder House road was the way to the Powder House, which now stands on land of Dr. Green, on the easterly side of Highland avenue.

The easterly branch of Ramshead lane is supposed to have been the way leading to the old mill, and the settlement in its vicinity, that was situated on Marble brook about a mile from High street.

note.—The map published in connection with the foregoing paper is offered for the purpose of enabling our readers to locate the points of interest named therein. It contains marks and legends that have no connection with the subject under consideration. It was necessary to publish it as a whole, or to compel the making of a new and partial copy. To the student of Medford history it will prove to be, without doubt, of much interest, notwithstanding its incomplete condition. It will be an object lesson to the Medford Historical Society of what might be accomplished by a more experienced map-maker than myself.
