Footbridge Looking West

Footbridge Looking West

This photo was taken looking NW toward Front Street from the north stream of Limestone Run. On the far side of the street you can see the bell tower on the top of the Miltonian Fire Company building. The home of Henry H. Gehrig, bottler, at no. 172 is visible to the left. The long building to the right is the lower John Y. Buoy building, originally owned by Benneville K. Haag. There is a footbridge running along the side of this building over the creek, which was used by the Miltonian Fire Company to lead their horses to stable. The buildings in the center of the picture appear to be the stables. The picture was probably taken in the 1880s.
