INTRODUCTION.

_____

Picturesque Sunbury is especially prepared for the

enlightenment of those who contemplate a change of res-

idence. There are many such in all parts of the country.

Some desire the change in order to find better society; oth-

ers to go into business; others to educate their children;

still others ofr various purposes. It is here sought to give

the intending settler the information which he may de-

sire ot enable him to intelligently decide where to make

his future home. The illusrations are from photo-

graphs, and are therefore true to life. Every statement

herein made and every claim set forth can be relied upon.

They can be verified by anyone who cares to investigate.

No roscae colors paint these pages, to fade upon being

put to the test. Plain, homely truths, and incontrovert-

ible facts are offered instead, and in the matter of facts

the truth has not half been told.

The recipient of this book is requested to read it

considerately, and then loan it to some friend who con-

templates a change of residence. In this way he may

benefit his fellow men.

_____

A Little of Its Past History, Its Present

Condition and Future Possibilities.

_____

Those who are looking for a suitable towy, which

they intend to make their home, care more for its presetn

condition than they do for its past history. But a book

of this kind would not be complete did it not contain a

few, at least, of the most important facts and events of

the history of the otwn its pages were intended to por-

tray, for it is but natural that the future of a town is to

be judged somewhat by the past.

Sunbury was laid out by William and Lawrence

Meyers, the original plat bearing the date of November 8,

1816. About a year before this Mr. Whitmore opened

the first store. He occupied a amall brick house now the

site of Joel Letts' residence on the south-west corner of

the square. He was succeeded in the centerprise by Ben-

jamin Webb, who occupied a store onthe corner of Col-

umbus and Granville streets. A third store was opened

by Stephen R. Bennett. Following close on these enter-

prises was the building of a tavern by Mr Rodgers. In

1820, the stage lines bringing more trade ot town. Law-

rence Meyers put up a grand hotel, Now occupied as a

residence by J. D. Skeels. About this time Taylor &

Chase put up a fulling mill, provided with apparatus for

carding and pressing. The power was a tread mill,

worked by oxen. The first tailor was Haultz Evans, who

came in 1828. The first schoolhouse was built in 1831 on

the south-cast corner of the public square. Besides serv-

ing the purpose for which it was erected, it was also

used by the early religious organizations as a place of

worship. A saw-mill, tannery and distillery were early

industries. In 1865 a stock company was formed for the

manufacture of a general line of furniture. In 1868 the

town hall was built, the money being raised by popular

subscriptions. The third story of the hall was built by

the Free and Accepted Masons, who use it yet for lodge

purposes. In October, 1872, the Farmers' Bank was

organized. Further mention of it is made under the

head of Financial Institutions. Thus the town grew,

new enterprises being added from time to time, and new

citizen coming into it. There are institutions and busi-

ness enterprises that we notice separately, which have

done much to make Sunbury what it is: one of the best

residence and business towns in central Ohio.

The foregoing shows what Sunbury has been in the

past and what it is now. We have every reason to be-

lieve that it has a very prosperous future before it. Its

location, natural resources, railroad facilities, healthful

climate, etc., are the things upon which we base our pre-

diction. The town has maintained a steady growth and

improvement during the past, and we may confidently

expect that it will continue to do so. The citizens are

full of enterprise and business and they will keep things

moving. What is now needed is not that our business

men be more active and energetic, but that their number

be added to with men who have not only the capital, but

the ability and energy as well, who will come here and

establish industries that will pay large dividends on the

investments, and also give employment to men with fam-

ilies, who will come here to live. There are many

[page 11]

branches of business that could be successfully conducted

here.

There is every probability that an electric road will

soon be built through Sunbury, connecting the county

seats of Delaware and Licking. Such a line would very

materially increase our trade, opening up territory whose

inhabitants now go to other markets because of inad-

equate means of travel.

In the years to come, Sunbury will gradually but

surely grow. The gradual, steady improvement now

being made will continue. Everything is favorable to

such growth and improvement. The town is now and

always will be a model residence and business place.

We welcome to our midst all who would better their con-

dition financially, socially, morally or intellectually.

Resources and Facilities.

_____

Sunbury is situated near the center of the eastern

part of Delaware county. The site seems to have been

admirably chosen for the future prospects of the village,

situated as it is near the conjuction of three counties,

Delaware, Licking and Knox, midway between Mt Ver-

non and Columbus, on the Mt Vernon and Columbus

road, which was for years the only thoroughfare in the

central part of the state between the north and south,

and gave rise to a great deal of traffic through, and no

little profit to, Sunbury as a stage station. It was reas-

onable to suppose, therefore, that with such natural ad-

vantages to attract enterprising men, the newly formed

village moght grow to considerable size, and attract to

itself that part of the three counties which was bo re-

mote from any town of considerable size.

many. Surrounding the town in every direction is land

that for many agricultural purposes is surpassed nowhere

in the state. The land is especially adapted to the

raising of grain and stock. The most of it is available

as there are no large swamps or bogs, and few barren

hills. The surrounding country is gently undulating.

The drainage is good and there are few pieces of land

within many miles that may not be well drained. We

are located between the Big Walnut river on the ease and

Prarie Run and Little Walnut on the west. In the

spring and summer season, one standing on any eminence

near the town, could behold as beautiful country as God

ever created. Besides being adapted to the raising of

grain and live stock it is also suitable for fruits and verge-

tables, and accordingly considerable attention is paid to

this latter industry. All kinds of fruit and vegetables

that can be raised anywhere in Ohio, can be produced in

the region around Sunbury.

Along the banks of the Big Walnut, for several

miles, may be found millions of perches of the best stone

for building purposes that can be found in the state.

The quarry industry has been given some attention, and

thousands of carload of stone have been gotten out and

shipped to many points in the state. But this industry

has never been thoroughly developed. If more men of

capital and enterprise would open up quarries and put in

the necessary machinery, not only would it be the best

and most profitable investment of their money that could

be made, but it would give employment to hundreds of

men. The Sunbury blue stone will always find a market,

for the reason that it can always be used for any purpose

that stone is used for.

Plenty of the best timber is to be found near the

town. Oak, hickory, beech, maple and elm are the

principal species. This timber is easily gotten out and

always finds a good market. The manufacture of

lumber is an industry in which many of the people in or

near Sunbury are concerned. There is still room, how-

ever, for others to go into the business and make money

out of it.

In speaking of advantages in the way of agriculture

we should not forget that there is in Sunbury one of the

best creameries in the state. One of the principal pro-

ducts of the farmer is milk which he brings to the

creamery to be made into butter that sells in the markets

for higher than the Elgin prices. The farmers make

more money out of this branch of agriculture that any

other, and if there is anyone who wishes to improve his

condition, we could give him no better advice than to

come to Sunbury, purchase cows and patronize the cream-

ery.

No better place could be found for the location of a

factory that Sunbury. As has been said we have plenty

of stone, plenty of timber, plenty of farm products, and

we also have plenty of labor. Our shipping facilities are

agood. We are situated on the C. A. & C. Ry., which is

a direct ine to Cleveland, Akron, Mt Vernon and Colum-

bus. The company has always been very considerate in

fixing its freight rates, and the rates are as low as are

consistent with good services. The water supply of Sun-

bury is the best. There are many good locations for a

factory. Any manufacturing concern which would de-

sire to locate here would meet with the encouragement of

every citizens. Taking everything into consideration,

there is no better place for the establishment of a factory

than Sunbury.

As a residence town Sunbury is equal to any other.

We have no saloons, no dives or questionable resorts.

The tone of he society of the village is moral and elevat-

ing. Religion and morality are encouraged. Schools

and churches are well maintained. Everything that is

desirable as a residence place is found in Sunbury.

PUBLIC SCHOOLS.

Sunbury possesses the best of facilities for the edu-

cation of the youth. There are four departments in the

school: High; A, B and C Grammar; B and A Primary

and D Grammar; and C. and D Primary. The corps of

teachers is made up of the following: Superintendent, R.

B. Bennett; High, R. B. Bennett; A B and C Grammar,

J. W. Pace; B and A Primary and D Grammar, Mrs J.

H. Gerhardt; C and D Primary, Miss Mabel Armstrong.

It is the opinion of the patrons of the school that the

course of study is the best that could be arranged. Some

facts concerning the work done in the year just closed

are given herewith:

Total Enrollment, 168.

Foreign Pupils Enrolled, 19.

Per Cent of Attendance, 96.3.

Enrollment in High School, 38.

The school building is a fine two-story brick, erected

in 1878. It is situated on a slight elevation at the north

end of Vernon street. The building is well ventilated

and lighted, and is one of the finest in the county. The

grounds are two acres in extent and are nicely planted

in shade trees. From the upper story and belfry a fine

view of the town and surrounding country can be had.

It has lately been repaired and repainted and furnished

with new desks, slate blackboards and a large amount of

modern apparatus of various kinds, and the latest maps.

Manuals, giving all the necessary information, may

be had by addressing R. A Larimore, clerk.

FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS.

Under this head the Farmers' Bank will be first

noticed. This institution was organized in October,

1872. Elias Kimball, Jno. Hall, A. Knox, B. Moore,

George Armstrong, George Griste, E. R. Thompson and

O. D. Hough were the stockholders. The bank trans-

acts all business usually done by banks, including the re-

ceiving of deposits, loaning money, buying and selling

exchange, collections, etc. The present officers are O.

H. Kimball, president, and O. A. Kimball cashier. C.

O. Armstrong is employed as assistant. There is not a

solider, safer institution in the state than the Farmers'

Bank. The people have great confidence in the men

who manage its affairs, for they are not only financially

capable, but are men of good sound judgment and bus-

iness ability. Cepter Stark, O. H. and O. A. Kimball

are the stockholders.

SUNBURY BUILDING & LOAN CO.

The Sunbury Building & Loan Co. was incorporated

in April, 1896. with a capital stock of $200,000. This

company was organized for the purpose of aiding the

citizens of Sunbury to build homes and improve their

property, also to afford a means of saving money. The

company will take care of your money, and pay you a

good interest on it. You can borrow of the company, build

yourself a house, and thus stop paying rent. We regard

this as one of our greatest of institutions.

MUTUAL FIRE INSURANCE CO.

The Delaware County Farmers' Mutual Fire Insur-

ance Co. was incorporated Sept. 4, 1877. This company

insures farm property only. The total amount of gross

risks in force Dec. 12, 1895 was $2,210,257; total losses

and expenses since organization, $13,658.50; average

loss per year, $430.25; average expense per year $199.34.

These figures show in a measure the amount of business

the company is doing. W. D. Miller, is president, Wm.

Barton, secretary.

SUNBURY STOCK SALE.

Feb. 6, 1888 a meeting of the citizens of Sunbury

was held for the purpose of establishing monthly stock

sales. Officers were elected, money raised, and the sale

advertised. The first sale was held March 2, 1888.

These sales have been held the first Friday in every

month since then. People have attended from all over

the country. All kinds of live stock meets with ready

sale on these occasions, and buyers are always here.

No one thing has helped the business of Sunbury more

than the stock sales. The merchants offer special bar-

gains on these days, and in consequence are kept busy all

day. On sale day the town has much the appearance of

a county fair. These sales will be kept up regularly as

they have been in the past.

CHURCHES.

The religious denominations in Sunbury are the

Baptist and the Methodist. These two societies have

flourished since early in the history of the town. As

early as 1820 societies w3ere formed for the dissemination

of christian doctrines. There is also a Christian church

at Tahway, about a mile and a half east of town, and

there are many church people here who hold membership

elsewhere. The churches work in harmony for the good

of all, and any religious movement receives the hearty

support of all the people.

ORGANIZATIONS.

In secret societies we have the following: Sparrow

Lodge, No 400, F. & A. M.; Columbia Chapter, No. 33,

O. E. S.;Sunbury Lodge, No. 231, K. of P.

There are several other organizations that deserve

mention. These are: Sunbury Christian Endeavor so-

ciety; King's Daughters; Daughters of Industry; Alumni

Association; and the Knox Band. This latter is one of

the leading musical organizations in the county.

HOMESTEAD STOCK FARM'

The Homestead Stock Farm McPerfect, proprietor,

is located one and one-half miles north-east of Sunbury.

Mr. Perfect has here fitted up everything necessary for

the keeping and training of horses. He is the owner of

the noted stallions McGuire, 2:29 1/2, No. 21676, and

Homestead, 2:25. Mr Perfect has a good half-mile track

on his farm, and once a year conducts a day of races,

which are well attended, and at which a number of the

best horses show their speed.

A COMMERCIAL CENTER.

As a commercial center Sunbury finds no superior in

any town of its size. There is a larger amount of busi-

ness transacted here than there is done in many towns

that have twice the population. This is true both of the

local and foreign trade. Our merchants, business and

professional men are prosperous. We have rarely had a

business failure. While those who are here are well

qualified to conduct the various branches of business,

there is yet room in many lines for energetic, capable

men.

As a shipping point Sunbury is among the leaders.

Hay, grain, live stock and country produce are the prisn

cipal articles of export, and the reports of our railway

agent indicate that in this respect we are ahead of very

many larger stations. There are a number of men who

make it their business to buy and ship these articles, and

Whenever one has anything to sell, it meets with a ready

market at good prices.

FLECKNER'S STONE QUARRIES.

Henry Fleckner is the owner and operator of several

stone quarries along the banks of Big Walnut river. Mr.

Fleckner is a man of many years experience in this busi-

and has conducted it in a practical manner. He has

given employment to many men since opening the

business here. Mr. Fleckner has not only supplied the

most of the stone that has been used for building purposes

in Sunbury in the past two decades, but aside from this

has shipped hundreds of carloads to points all over the

state.
