HISTORY OP THE BEAVER VAIh
Correspondence of -the Pittsburgh Gazette.
Beater V alley, Dec., 1878.
BEAVER AS IT tS.
Beaver now contains a population of
About 1,200 souls, of as indusbious, moral
and temperate people as can be found in
The location cannot be surpassed, either
in point of picturesque and charming
scenery, or in its bealtbfulneas. It is lo
cated on an elevated platean, abruptly
rising from lbe Obio river and running
to the foot; of the hills behind it—while
by a gradual slope, it descends to the
waters of the Beaver on the cast. The
buff fronting the Ohio, places the town
high above the water level and relieves it
largely from the dense fogs common to
river towns, and the miasmatic influences
that might form from the ponds beneath
its feet. Its elevation gives it a command
ing position at the mouth of the Beaver
Valley, enabling its denizens to overlook
f> a certain extent in front, and to the
left a vast expanse of country, covered by
tbe beautiful towns which nestle at the
base of the hills, or crown their summits,
and are partially hidden amid tbe trees
and shrubbery, so lavishly bestowed by
tbe hand of Nature. The river view from
Beaver is as beautiful a picture as man
may wish to witness. Its varied land
scape ; its gently sloping bills and the per
fect combination of tbe picturesque and
beautiful, presented, is a scene not soon
to be forgotten. Tbe famed and weir her
alded charms of the Hudson river scenery,
as partially given in our Aldinc and Pic
ture&que America , do not often surpass
that afforded by au up river
VIEW FROM BEAVER.
It is really worth immortalizing on can
vas and it seems to me that a few dollars
spent by the “solid” men of Beaver in
such an enterprize, would do more to
give their home city a favorable place
among the outside people, than any other
possible enterprise. Beside the varied
scenery of hill and vale, four charming
towns are in the view from Beaver. Just
across the Ohio, is seen the pretty little
town of Phillipsburg, looking so like a
fairy city as it is dwindled into compara
tive smallness, by the hugh bills that
form the background. It is elevated
above the river, and forms of itself a de
lightful view, as it seems to gradually
fade away into, and become a part of the
hills on either side. Away beyond up
the river, partially hidden by the turn of
the river, is Freedom, with its homes
and pleasant slopes, supplemented by a
busy industry at the boat yards. Below
it, lies the thriving town of Rochester, its
river bank covered with manufactories,
marts of trade and all the implements and
arts of a busy life, while gently sloping
back from tbe river is the hill, on which
is located some of the loveliest homes in
tbe valley. Adorning the slopes are tbe
churches with their spires pointing heav
enward, and tbe ivy-grown buildings
which tell us of the peace that reigns
within its borders. Lying side by side
with Beaver on the east, is the pleasant
town of Bridgewater with its pleasant
homes and surroundings. These, with the
river 'lazily gliding by them, and in Us
serpentine course washing the shores by
each town, and wearing away the green
banks by a ceaseless attrition—floating on
its broad bosom the hundreds of boats
carrying the wealth of commerce—togeth
er with the grand old hills on either side,
some rising to a height Where they frown
ingly look down upon tbe busy people
beneath, and others with just enough as
x»nt to give theta the name and place of
bills, may all be seen in one view from
Beaver, forming a scene of transcendent
loveliness that no pen as it
presents itself to tbe mini of one who
loves tbe beautiful in nature and art.
Immediately fronting Beaver across the
Ohio, are some very formidable looking
hills, that hide'from view the fine country
lying behind them.
Forming the rear of the town is a suc
cession of sloping binds, gradually rising
to a respectable height and extending into
the country beyond.
From the river bank to the base of
these bluffs, is probably about one-half or
three-fourths of a mile, the intervening
grounds being as level as a prairie. The
flat extends probably about three miles
down the Ohio, every foot of it being
adapted for building purposes.
reaver's thoroughfares. *
The main street of the town runs par
allel with, and, about forty rods back
from the river. It is a beautiful street,
and by a little work, some expenditure of
time and money, and proper attention,
can be made one of the most beautiful
and attractive avenues in the valley. It
runs the full length of the town, is of
good width and presents a fine natural
view. But the most handsome street in
the town, is that fronting on the bank of
the river. It is wide, extending to the
edge of the bluff, and is ornamented with
graceful parks of well shaped trees, form*
log a delightful retreat'from the beat and
dust of the more busy part of town. It is
used, especially by the younger people,
•as a sort of summer resort, where “sweet
communion” may be held, and sweeter
stories told, beneath the trees in the
cooling shade. Ah, if those trees could
only talk, what plots and schemes would
be revealed—-what populous cities of air
castle would be disclosed to view, that
had been formed and brought to life in
the day dreams of tin lads and lasses o'
staid old Beaver town. At the upper end
of town there is a fine grove of trees,
making a rural scene of surpassing in
terest. ;On the main street is a well lo
cated public ground or Diamond, com
prising about ten acres of ground. This
is divided into four equal parts, set apart
for tbe public buildings of the town.
Upon eoe of these squares is located tbe
Court House buildings. The Court House
proper, is about eighty by sixty feet,
built of brick and a very respectable
structure. It does not present quite as
imposing an architectural appearance as
Beaver rightfully deserves, but taken all
in all, itwill compare favorably with our
sister county seats, and is very well
calculated to meet all the requirements of
TOE FAIR GROUNDS.
In the eastern part of the town fronting
a bluff ascending from Bridgewater, are
located the grounds set apart for fair pur
poses Tbe grounds have an excellent
situation, and so far as the natural is con
cerned, nothing better could be wished.
But not so much can be said of the works
of art, after making all liberal allowances.
The grounds are well laid out, but as a
general statement, tbe buildings do not
correspond. They have about served their
day. If no funds are available for tbe
erection of new ones, certainly some of tbe
old ones might be treated to i coat of
paint, and others removed from tbe
grounds. Beaver is not up to tbe re
quirements of tbe age in this regard and
should wake up, make it a place of beau
ty and attractiveness, gentlemen mana
BUSINESS OF BEAVER.
In a business point of view, Beaver is,
of course, behind tbe other towns of our
valley. It has no facilities for mannfac
taring, and is consequently so much de
prived of a means of greater prosperity.
Tnere are 18 stores of various kinds; 2
drug stores; 3 confectioneries; and the
usual amount of small business done. So
far as the busy bum of industry goes,
Beaver is rather quiet and to a great
many people, who are accustomed to tbe
noise and machinery and tbe ceaseless
clatter of hammers, it is a dull place Tbe
learned professions, are, however, well
represented, and perhaps, may atone for
the lack of muscular activity. There are
5 physicians, being 1 for each 240 people ;
no more needed. For tbe administration
of justice, we have 12 lawyers, ready at
all times for clients; of ministers, she can
boast tbe goodly number of 15, some,
however on tbe retired list. It is for this
circumstance, probably, tbat tbe town is
sometimes dubbed “Saints’ Rest,” Ijy cer
tain ones who are of an irreverent thru of
"mind. Be tbat true or not, tbe town
would deserve the name for the reason
that it is deeply rooted and grounded in
morality. Not a grog shop does or
could exist id its midst, because qf the
strong total abstinence sentiment of tbe
Id addition to this, it is a
MODEL OF MORALITY
in every way, and when you add to this
its beauty and wealth of intellectual abil
ity and activity, what name is too ex
pressive of its fitness for the houses of
men and women of the purest character.
It Has three churches, the United Pres
byterian, Old School Presbyterian and
Methodist Episcopal. The ministers in
charge of them are gentlemen of fine cul
ture, and strongly marked religions hab
its and thought. Of course they are pros
perous, and their evidence of it is in large
membership and the general morality of
The general character of the residences
of the town is not of a peculiarly high
one. It is true that there are some fine
dwellings in the town. Without intend
ing to underrate any others, I must notice
those of Col. Quay and J. Weyaud, Esq.
The residence of the first is undoubtedly
the finest building in Beaver county in
every respect. It is a beautiful architec
tural work, symmetrical in every part,
and at the same time a commodious, com
fortable house. It is an excellent model
of modern architecture for others, and
Beaver ought to imitate it on every large
lot. Mr. Weyand’s house does not pre
sent so fine an appearance, but yet is a
fine looking house, and is a commendable
addition to the real attractions of the
town. There are others, but space and
time forbid their mention. There are a
great many neat structures, cosy and
comfortable. Occasionally we notice one
that seemingly is of modern origin, with
its bright appearance and clean front, yet
lacking modern conveniences. Some
times they look as if they were cramped
in their light dress, and an inspection
shows us an old weather-beaten fellow, of
three score and nearly ten, built of logs
and now covered with boards. Cover
that old house as you may, paint it and
fresco it from top to base, and you cannot
hide the good old cheering warmth of the
pioneer's house. It is a good deal like
brother Jonathan dressed up in court
style, or certain Beaver lads who might
be mentioned, who try to cover and hide
nature with a "tile’* and dapper cane. A
true artist loves tumble down buildings
and old time structure better than the
new, and takes pleasure in blending the
new and the old. So it may be, that it is
better that the town should have these
contrasts in dwellings—a sort of light and
shade—forming a variety that would be
entirely destroyed, by the harmony and
probable monotony of modern styles.
But let the result be what it may, we
hope to see Beaver, especially Main street,
lined with structures that will ornament
her natural beauty and be of utility in
THE RADICAL: FRIDAY* FEB#
We bare three newspapers In the town.
The Radical is the representative of the
Republican principles and is /Always po
litically right, and consequently enjoys a
large patronage. The Argu», represented
the late Liberal movement, and Is now
independent in politics, bat in the course
of time will naturally come back Into the
fold, and ardently snpport President
Grant. The Contem rtwe was the organ
of the “straightont” Democrats In the
late campaign. Each of the papers seems
prosperous, which we hope may continue
from year to year.
Beaver is more widely known on ac
count of its schools, than any other Inter
est centered there. The town boasts an
excellent public school building built of
brick and about eighty feet square. It is
a credit to the good people who have put
it up. There is also located, three insti
tutions of learning of a higher grade, two
of which are not at present in operation.
They have each done a good service and
ought now to be io running order. Last
and largest and greatest on the list, how
ever, is the “Beaver College and Musical
Institute,” and which is after all the most
successful institute in the town.
' Rev. R. T. Taylor, D. D., is now and
has been for some years, President of the
College. It is hardly necessary for your
correspondent to mention the name of this
gentleman, who is already known and
honored wherever the College is known.
Prof. Taylor teaches became helotes it, and
hence bis wonderful success. The great
success of this institute is no doubt in a
large part attributable to the unremitting
efforts of Prof. Taylor and lady, and their
constant devotion to duty and the inter
ests of their pupils. Rev. M. Simpson,
one of the Bishops of the M. £. Church
and Rev. Dr. D. L. Dempsey, of Beaver,
were among the first to call attention to
the desirableness of Beaver as the location
for an educational institution of a high
grade. Among its early founders were
such men as Hoo. Daniel Agnew, one of
the Supreme Judges of Pennsylvania,
Rev. W. G. Taylor, of Pbillipsburg Sol
diers’ Orphan School, Rev. J. Monroe and
the Hon. Benj. Adums, of Beaver. In
1833 a charter was obtained for the school,
under the name of Beaver Female Semi
nary, which title was changed in 1860 to
Beaver Seminary and Institute, since
which a department has been added for
the education of young men. Rev. Sheri
dan Baker was the first Principal, follow
ed at the expiration of three sessions by
Samuel Davenport, A. M., who, after a
like period was succeeded by the present
principal, Rev. R. T. Taylor, D. D., a
graduate of one of our New England
Colleges, and a member of the Pittsburgh
Conference of the M. E. Church. It is in
every way, a school that can be recom
mended to all who wish a thorough edu
cation under competent teachers.
FUTURE OF BEATER
is a subject that ought to engage the at
tention of its citizens. In the town there
are over 800 acres of land, exclusive of
streets and alleys, every foot of which
can be used for building purposes. Mak
ing liberal allowance for public buildings,
parks, promenades, etc., there is capacity
enough for a population of over 20,000
people. The approaches to it are good
railroads extending in every direction—
easily reached by steamers, and but one
hour's ride from Pittsburgh. As Beaver
Valley is destined to be eventually a great
manufacturing centre, why may not Bea
ver become the home of the capitalist, the
artisan and the gentleman of means who
desires to educate children ? Beaver
ought to wake up. Ornament your town.
Line those broad and beautiful streets
with shade trees, and make it a place of
beauty and thrift. Remove your dilapi
dated shanties, repair wherever repairing
is needed. You men of capital, put Bea
ver College on a firm and sound financial
basis, with endowments that shall make
its term easy, and give the teachers a good
living salary, and then put your solid
shoulders under the Academy and Female
Seminary, and give them new life. If
Beaver does her duty, the day is not far
distant when she can boast of being at the
month of a valley famed all over this
A Des Moines, lowa, reporter, can
write up a trifling incident of western
life in as good a style as those New York
fellows. Hear him: "In Buffalo, Scott

they had been takin’ sntbin,* a man as

The celebrated Henderson, the actor,
was seldom known to be in a passion.
When at Oxford he was one day debating
with a fellow stndent, who, not keeping
bis temper, threw a glass of wine in his
face. Hr. Henderson took out his hand
kerchief, wiped his fape, and coolly said,
