Breou Map - 1883

1883 Breou Map
This 1883 map is pretty crude in terms of accuracy, especially the angle at which Charlestown Road bends away from Church Road (coming in from the bottom), as well as the level of detail. The map does not show Pickering Dam Rd. coming into Charlestown Rd. opposite the store, nor does it show the farmhouse and barn associated with the mill.
While the 1874 Witmer Map showed Moses Ring as the owner of the store and Post Office, this map shows J. R. Peirce as owner of the store and Post Office. I have a photo of the store when it was owned by John R. Peirce. A portion of that photo is shown at the lower right of this map.
