Cool 1853 Black Cat Island Deed

While looking around for Rattlesnake Island history, I came across this Deed for Black Cat Island and thought I'd share it with you. Hope you like it!

Default 1853 Black Cat Island Deed

Rattlesnake Gal, can you tell where you found the deed? I presume that you found it on line. At about $11 per acre, I wonder if it was a good buy then since it probably wasn't suitable for farming.

Default Black Cat Island

You presume correctly, I found them at NH Counties Registry of Deeds.
(Thanks Just Sold for pointing me in that direction!)

We were wondering about the money ratio from then to now too - thanks for the push.

This Consumer Price Index calculator (CPI) states that $800 in 1853 converts to $19120.80 in 2005.
Not a bad deal at all!

I don't recall that Winnipesaukee Steamboat Company did anything with the island of historical significance either. Perhaps they were thinking of using it as a tourist destination? It's a beautiful spot.
