Description and much of the Cultural Data based on
research by Donovan & Associates

1908 Sanford Fire Map cropped to show Historic Property #62 as vacant.

From the 1908 Sanford Fire Map of downtown Pomeroy. Note that 4th is now 8th and 5th is now 9th. That's Columbia on the bottom with the railroad shown as he double line running left to right near the bottom of the image. There should be another property line top to bottom just to the right of the square yelloe building marked "D".

The Pomeroy train depot building will be built in about three years covering the green building and the yellow building. Our site is still vacant.
