American House in foreground, Howard Opera House and Jewelry Store just beyond, looking northeast. Up to the left is Route 48 to Oswego, and to the right is Route 370 to the east. The two maps show the location of both places in 1885 and by 1890 there were new stores being built on the old American House corner.
