This fascinating map was published a little more than a decade after the 1776 Declaration of Independence. It shows a far different Mill Hill-South Trenton area when compared to the many homes that line all the streets in the area.  As can be seen in the map, plots are already laid out with residences, Closer examination will show the location of the William Trent House, the Mill Hill area, including "Mill Pond" along the Assanpink Creek. I have labeled in red the old original streets of the area, and speculate as to the streets shown in the top right of the map.
