Building and Improvements

The following appeared in The Ypsilantian of Thursday, November 5, 1891.

Harlow Wells has his handsome new house on Cross street enclosed

Geo. M. Gaudy has the foundation walls of his house at the corner of Pearl and Ballard completed.

The Henderson house on Huron street north of Cross is being improved by porch in front.

The Peninsular Paper Co. are putting in the city water for fire protection, connecting with the main at the corner of Huron and Ann streets, and carrying their pipe across the river to reach the north mill. (This did not do them much good, as the mill on the north side of the river burned in 1898.)

The new proprietors of the Hawkins House are putting in steam heating apparatus.
