where they were removed about the 1st of

The first Secretary was John J. Wads-
worth, who was succeeded in 1881, after a
service of seven years, by Douglas Benson,
who continues to fill the position. The Secre-
tary prints a report each year showing the
industrial and commercial conditions of the
city, which is a valuable handbook of infor-
mation for all who take an interest in its
growth and general welfare.


It will be seen by the foregoing chapters
that the business of Erie started at the mouth
of Mill creek, and from there gradually moved
up Second, Third and Fourth streets to
French. For several years Third street was
the chief business thoroughfare of the city,
until it was supplanted by French street.
Sixty or seventy years ago French street was
the busiest and most important in the city. The
postoffice, the principal hotels and the leading
business houses were upon or convenient to
that street, and it continued an important
business thoroughfare until some time after

1860. When the writer came to Erie, in

1861, French street still had quite a number of
prominent hotels and business places, and was
looked upon as only second in importance to
State street. The movement in the direction
of State street commenced directly after the
erection of the United States bank build-
ing, so long occupied as the custom-house and
postoffice. In 1861 the main business portion
of Erie was from Fourth to Eighth streets on
State, and on i\orth Park Row from Peach to
French streets. The corner of Fifth and
State streets was regarded as the heart of the
city, and the best stores were in that vicinity.
There is no reason — natural or artificial — why
business should have moved away from the
neighborhood of the parks, and the only ex-
planation is to be found in the indifference
of property holders, who supposed they had a
" sure thing," and the activity of those who
had property to sell south of the location
named. To-day the men who own land and
buildings on the west side of State street are
quite as sanguine that they cannot be dis-
placed as the property owners north of Cen-
tral park were many years ago. The fact is

self-evident, however, that some of the best
buildings and the finest stores are going up
and being started on the east side of the street,
and, unless the property owners on the west
side wake up in good time, they will find
that the prize has slipped from their grasp,
just as was the case on the north end of
the street and the north side of the park.
State street will always be the main busi-
ness avenue of Erie, and when the city
reaches a population of 75,000 to 100,000
it will make very little difference whether
a store is on the east or west side, provided
the proper accommodations are offered. Per-
sons who are familiar with Chicago, Buffalo,
Cleveland, or any of the larger cities of the
country, will readily see the force of these


Among the men and firms, not otherwise
mentioned, who were engaged in trade, manu-
facturing or general business in Erie in the
year past were those named below. The
names include only those who are dead or re-
tired from active business ; or where the
firm names have changed or the parties have
engaged in other lines. The list is not
claimed to be complete, and it is doubtful if
a really full one could be obtained at this late
