A Treasure Trove of History

I have been visiting Cape Cod, and specifically Chatham for over 50 years and stumbled into this treasure trove of a store this summer. What an interesting place. Maps from all eras and locations around the world. The staff is extremely friendly and knowledgeable. Bob is such a historian – knowing the back-story for all that he sells. If you have any interest in maps of any kind, you have to stop in for a visit. This place is open year round, and if you don’t see what you want – just ask. Thanks to Bob, Danielle and Kathryn for assisting us with our two purchases. We’ll be back!

A wonderful store with friendly and helpful owners and staff

We have visited Maps of Antiquity several times and on each occasion Danielle, Bob, and their staff have been extremely helpful and accommodating. The store is a wonderful place to visit and spend some time looking through a terrific collection of antique maps, prints, and post cards. We have made three purchases – a large, classic road map of Cape Cod (circa 1905) for our family room and two late 19th century maps – one of Portland, ME and the other of Westchester County, NY – as gifts for our children. These maps were beautifully framed by Bob, and they are prominently displayed in our homes. We highly recommend a trip to Maps of Antiquity. It’s a fun place to visit and the owners are very knowledgeable, friendly, and customer-service oriented. Just as we did, we’re sure you’ll come away with a great impression and, most likely, a historic map for your home.
