 This animation shows the time tunnel from 2017 to 1878. The location viewpoint is Main Street near Chestnut.  You can view the Court House, Central School Building on the hillside and the Steeple of St. Michael's Catholic Church is also in the photo. To the left, you can see the wooden stairway and the early buildings of the Joseph Wolf Brewing Complex. The streets were dirt and there was a lot of horse traffic in the early downtown area.
