Lower Washington St., circa 1875
Looking at the south side of Lower Washington St. High St. is just to the right. From left to right:
  • Stores in the “White Block”
  • Good Intent Hose Company No. 1. This brick building, constructed at significant cost, was completed in January 1872 and headed the town’s progression to a well-organized fire-fighting system after years of more haphazard efforts. It housed a hose carriage and a steam fire engine.
  • Thomas Parsons Steam Fire Engine (pictured in front)
  • Royal Woodward, Blacksmith
