With vintage photographs and fascinating detail, the book records Courthouse Square, early salt roads and quarries, splendid cobblestone houses, the Erie Canal passing through town, famous resident George Pullman, Rich’s Corners, two correctional facilities, and the outstanding garden-style Mount Albion Cemetery.
