      Cameron Street.

      A brick two story building also erected by Philip Roth [should read Poth] at the same time the one on the opposite corner. This building was intended for a hotel with the expected coming of the railway. Later it was occupied by a party of Italians who made plaster casts, all sorts of bears, animals, etc., peddling them about the country, the peddler carrying his wares in a large frame on his head and shoulders. These Italians came suddenly and as suddenly left after a brief stay.

      A house occupied by Rev. Moses Erb, Mennonite Minister, who came from Bridgeport; later a Mr. Lindner who made rocking horses, toys, etc., occupied the building.
