Abstract: This is a fire insurance plan of the village of Crapaud. It was created in 1897 and revised to 1910. The main map shows Main Street and the area where the roads into town converge. The Crapaud Creamery Co. butter factory is shown in its own map at the bottom of the page. A key plan near the upper right corner of the page provides context. The maps show numbered town sections and buildings, which are also numbered, with their heights given in storeys. The buildings are colour-coded according to construction materials and/or use. A key on the right side explains the colour coding and symbols (used to depict architectural features). Labels on some buildings indicate their use. The Westmoreland River is shown outlined with blue. The maps show street widths measured in feet. Text indicates the community has "no appliances" in terms of firefighting resources. The main map and the key plan have compasses with north arrows. There is a line scale in feet.
