View of Sharon, Mercer County, P.A., 1901 / drawn & published by T. M. Fowler & James B. Moyer.

This panoramic print of Sharon, Pennsylvania was drawn by Thaddeus Mortimer Fowler and published by T. M. Fowler & James B. Moyer in 1901. Sharon was established in the late 1700's. Grist and saw mills began to appear early in the 1800's and Sharon was laid out on the west side of the Shenango River in 1815 by land owner William Budd.

Lumbering and distilling were important early interests of Sharon. Incorporated as a borough in 1841, Sharon prospered greatly with the discovery of coal in Pennsylvania as furnaces emerged throughout the region for manufacture of pig iron.

In the latter half of the 1800's attention turned toward the making of steel. Furniture making and flouring mills were valued interests during the 1800's, while the iron and steel industry dominated Sharon’s economy.

The map shows Sharon’s labeled streets, buildings, bridges and railroad lines.
