History of Ellicottville presented Tuesday
The third in a series of lectures on the Early History of Ellicottville will be presented by the Ellicottville Historical Society at 7:30 p.m. Aug. 14 at the Ellicottville Memorial Library. Some longtime local residents will speak on the industries of Ellicottville throughout the years. Fast-moving streams and a growing population encouraged settlers to build sawmills and grist mills. An abundance of hardwood trees in this area influenced the production of wooden last blocks. Daniel Bartlett, M. Murphy & Son and Fitzpatrick & Weller dominated the world market on these blocks that shoes were formed over in the late 1890's. Other diversified industries included baseball bats, baskets, a condensed milk factory, furniture upholstery and a cutlery business. All this was before skiing was ever imagined in this small village.
The lecture is free to the public and refreshments will be served. Call Cathy Lacy for more information at 945-5080
