“Absolutely fantastic! ”
Reviewed 20 August 2014 via mobile

The staff was very friendly and welcoming--even told me as a first time visitor what was where. They asked me what I was interested in and helped me find something. I will make it a point to come back here on any future visits to Chatham, that is, if I don't return on this trip!

“Beautiful Maps/Great Service”
Reviewed 16 August 2014

Recently I read about Maps of Antiquity. Being of a curious nature, I went to their website and found the most beautiful maps dating back centuries. My wife and I take frequent trips to Jamaica and I found the most beautiful map of Jamaica, circa 1821. Upon its safe arrival in short time I took it to have framed and the framing was more than the map! The service was also fantastic. Buying a map from Maps of Antiquity was a great experience and I will do it again. Mark Bryant, Paducah, Kentucky

“Hidden Gem”
Reviewed 31 July 2014

We found this place on trip advisor and were excited to check it out. We showed up just after they closed but the owners were so friendly they invited us in anyways to poke around, even after we told them we were "just looking". The place was packed full of so many original maps from so many places from all years. I felt like a kid looking through them all. We ended up almost buying several but settled on a very cool repro map of cape cod. Well worth the trip we made out of our way and they were so knowledgeable and patient with all our questions!!
