The Home Lumber Industry idences. And a City of Beautiful Out Natural and. Acquired Advantages, Shipping Facilities by Rail and Water - Unsurpassed Immense pjisjness Enterprises.Nan-ufacturing Concerns and Mercantile THE NcV-CITY OF . TONAWANDA THE GREAT LUMBER CITY, ITS MARVELOUS GROWTH AND GREAT PROSPERITY. It was in Tonawanda that the first work undertaken Dn the Erie Canal in Erie Countv was begun. It having been determined to use a part of Tonawanda Creek for the waterway, the Canal Commissioners coatracted with Judge Samuel Wilkeson iand Dr. Ebenezer Johnson, early in i the winter of 1822-3 to construct a dam across the stream, near its moutfrTand all through the summer of 1823 Wilkeson believed that a considerable settlement would eventually gather at that point, and he opened the first sSore there. Wilkeson and Johnson also! built a toll-bridge across the-creek, aind opened a store on the north side, In iNiagara County. Soon afterwards Albert H. Tracy, Charles Townsendj and a few other citizens of Buffalo purchased a piece of land, and laid it out in village lots and streets. That was the beginning of Tonawanda. I On the 29th of Aagust, 1823, actual excavation on the anal Itself In this county was commenced, near the site AMERICAN ENGINE t Tonawanda, N. Y. of the CQmmereia Street bridge, in Buffalo, on which loccasion there was the customary celebration and speech-making. Behind the plows of the contractors followed a procession with bands of music, whifle cannon were fired at intervals. "Thn," says the published account, "thgy partook of a beverage furnished toy ithe contractor." The work on thei western section of the canal went rapBly forward and before the close of 11824 it was nearly finished within the limits of this county. i The Buffalo & . Niagara Palls Railroad, the first steam railway in Western New Tork, was; opened from Tonawanda In 1836; an a the Canandalgua & Niagara Falls Railroad in 1854. Botn these roads are . now part of the New York Central & Hudson River Railroad system. " j The first town meeting of Tonawanda was held ln the spring of 1837, when 'he -following officers wfre elected: William Williams, supervisor; T. W. WiJUam-- son, town clerk; John T. Bush, Daniel Smith and a Mr. osdyck, justices of the peace; James Qarney and Jeremiah Phalin, assessors; William Post and John Simpson, commissioners of highways, i Henry P. Smith was the pioneer lumber dealer, and as tearly as 1840 John Simpson had established saw mills and planing mills, and alout 1849 with others was instrumental in causing the Cleveland Commerfcial Company to make an earnest eftort to develop and Improve the harbor, i The company purchased 500 feet of liver frontage, built an elevator with k storage capacity of 250,000 bushels, laid out several new streets, gave a Jarge public square to the village, and pold numerous lots on credit. But thjs enterprise soon failed. The elevatorjwas burned in 1857 and the company mpved to Buffalo. About 1865, Tonawanda began to be an important luirfbet center, though it did not assume remarkable activity in this respect until afler 1870. Colonel L. S. Payne erected a i steam sawmill in 1847, and In 1850 Mertltt Crandall started another. Soon afterward, Stimson, Stimson, Woolson !& Whaiey kuilt mills; Butts & Co.. and others engaged in the stove trade; John A. McDougall an EXCELLENT GASOLINE AUTOMOBILE Jfew Tklcle by tke Karia C. f Tuw Institutions. .& Co., became dealers In square timber, jnd In 1857 bought a cargo of lumber from Canada; and B. F. Betts interested himself In the lumber trade. In 1865 A. B. Williams and : A. G. Kent purchased the mill -of Merritt & CrandalL. and later acquired the mills of Frederick Smith and. Robert Kooh. ' Mr. Will-,ams continued In the business for many years. The lumber, trade originated - inthe village of Tonawanda, ibut has toTt arge extent been transferred ' to the presenjt' city of North Tonawanda. The two places really!-., comprise tne great lumber district; aijid so closely are their nterests associated in this, connection; hat they may, foe considered as one. ! In 1873 there were received by lake transportation; 104,909,000 feet of lumber; 1,258,000 pieces of lath; and 1,112,000 pieces of shingle; and. shipped by canal! S0.273.285 feet of lumber. In 1883, the luantities were Received by lake: 398,-$71,853 feet1 of lumber; 6,081,850 pieces of ath;. 55,217,000 pieces 1 of shingle; and -hipped by- canal 824,528,26 feet of lumber. Ten years later, again, there were received by lake j transportation: 430,-J48.922 feet of lumber; 13,232,600 pieces of lath; 25,257,400 pieces of shingle; and shippedj 'by canal, 216,116,532 pieces of lumber. ! Since 1888 something like half a mil-ion dollars have fyeen spent on the improvement of Tonawanda harbor, which -v ill now float any vessel on the lakes. The last important step in the development ind growtji of Tonawanda vas its incdrporatjon as a city, by leg-slative action. Oil March 17th the'first ity elet-tion was held and Tonawanda, by the election ofj its civic officers became a city In deed as well as in name.
