Historic Map - Bowling Green, OH - 1888

Bowling Green, Ohio 1888. Burleigh Lith. Est.

Reproduction panoramic view of Bowling Green, Ohio published by Burleigh & Norris in 1888. Bowling Green was incorporated as a town in 1855. Oil was later discovered here, setting Bowling Green into motion to expand. Much land swapping of the main corridor enabled building to begin of a new western town including fifty to one hundred buildings. On August 4, 1887 much of those plans ceased when a quarter of the new business district was destroyed by fire. Building began again, but one year later another fire destroyed that work. That fire on October 31, 1888, destroyed the Sentinel Block, C. C. Ross' Hotel, Emerine & McCauley's hotel and livery, F. N. Griffith's store and Mrs. James Smith's opera house, among other sites.
