Cabot To Build Factories Below Town in 1899

(08/20/2002)

Transcribed by Norma Knotts Shaffer from microfilm of Calhoun Chronicle dated 10/3/1899.

The Grantsville Board of Trade held in meeting last week and decided to have Mr. Cabot build his factories three miles below town, in order to avoid the rush and annoyance of active business.  This is an enterprising town.  We congratulate Mr. Silcott in walking away with this new industry in Calhoun county.  "Brick" is all right, all right, but the property owners of Grantsville should put the price of their land up a little.  This thing of letting monied people have real estate $100.00 and acre, or such a matter, is foolishness.
