April 2016 photo of the month

Downtown from Mill St 003This month we have one of the classic pictures of downtown Apple Creek. The photographer is on High Street looking towards the businesses on Main Street in the early 1900’s. Shown are the drug store, the shoe store, and the Fountain Inn. Fountains were another name for the many artesian wells that flowed in Apple Creek. Also note the wooden sidewalk that allowed the towns folk to keep their shoes clean since the streets could get very muddy.
