Craig Martin kindly supplied all photographs on this page.

Below: Murphy’s Dry Goods at 100 W. Independence St. This photo was taken before 1914. Descendents of this family have a funeral home in Scottdale today. The shop was later taken over by Mollie Fretts. That’s the Fretts family at left in a 1914 photo taken in front of the building below. The streets had not yet been bricked. The Integra Bank occupies this site today.

1899: The Nelse Martin farm. At left, Edmund Martin; at right, Nelse R. Martin; To Nelse’s right is Martha Martin, later Piersol. The three ladies in light-colored blouses are Pittsburgh school teachers who had reserved a week “down on the farm” to get away from the city. The child on the mowing machine is Mabel Martin.

The Perryopolis Railroad Station.
Leah Evans writes: “The Station stood where the Borough Garage stands now, at the bottom of Cemetery Road. It was the station of the Washington Run Railroad and the stationmaster lived in the nearby house. Joe Masch built the garage when he lived in the house nearby. Before he tore the station down he bought junker cars and tore them apart, then sold any parts that were good. After he built the new garage he repaired older cars for a while. He also had gas pumps and sold Sinclair gas, greased and changed oil, and attended to other auto needs.”
