On This Day: Fulton sees growth

Fulton Township reports much growth On This Day in 1880. The growth includes residential, barns, and bridges. 

John Wright, Mrs. Groff, and Mrs. Harlan all put up new residences. Tom Jones, David Deaver, and Robert Clark built barns, while Timothy Haines build a large tobacco house. The new bridge crossing Peters’ Creek is ready for inspection. Mrs. Reynolds is continuing her mercantile business at Eldora station.
