1894 to 1898 Booklets Detailing Road Repair Taxes for Townships in Aroostook County, Maine

1894 to 1898 booklets detailing the road repair taxes due from residents and non residents of townships in Aroostook County, Maine. 

Click here to see Townships in Aroostook County.

Some townships disappeared from the list in 1896 or later, perhaps as the State took over road repair. Some townships first appeared with the 1896 or later booklet, presumably as roads in more remote places were being created.
