Historic Map - Conneaut, OH - 1896
Panoramic reproduction view of the town known as Conneaut, Ohio drawn and published by Thaddeus Mortimer Fowler in 1896. Conneaut was founded on an old Native American trail and later a trail for settlers moving west, at the northeast corner of Ohio along Lake Erie at the mouth of the Conneaut Creek. The city became an important transportation town when an extension of the Erie Canal was built. Stations of the "Underground Railroad" were rumored to have been here. In 1835 the Conneaut Harbor Lighthouse was built on a pier overlooking the harbor. The pier was victim to much deterioration and in the 1890's a new pier and lighthouse were built to replace it. That lighthouse was later replaced as well. The city prospered as a shipping port for grain, whiskey and forestry products.
The map features an inset illustration of "Conneaut Harbor", and has clearly labeled street names with lively scenes of railroad, carriage and pedestrian traffic. Complete reference list below.
