* Tile-fTst settlement made in what is
now known as Bridgewater, was proba
bly about the beginning of the present
century, or perhaps as early as 1798 or
1799., The first settler took np the lands
lying on the point, or more properly,
triangular fiat formed by the confluence
of Brady’s Run-'and Beaver 'River,,'and
runningback to tke hills north of Beayeir.
A village-was built on this flat, and the
name of Shawm given to it, which for a
great many years was quite a noted place
among travelers who had occasion to
■visit the valley. What is now the most,
thriving and populous part of Bridge
water, was then unknown except as a
wilderness, and as being a part of the
lands included In the “academy outlets,”
aid out in 1791. It was many years
afterward, before, Bridgewater was even
thought of as a town. The first building
put up in Sharon, was in all probability
occupied by Mr. Robert Darrah, and used
by him as a public house, for the enter
tainment of travelers who should visit
the valley. It was used also probably as
the boarding place of the managers of
the work being done s expedi
tion, by Dr. McCaslin and wife and the
■Constable brothers. But the most con
spicuous building and one that seeips to
have the most interesting history,: was
that one with the red front and known as
“the old red front,” which was erected by
Messrs. Hoopes, Townsend & Co., in 1803,
for the use of Isaac Wilson, who was
then a native of Baltimore. The house
was built and used for merchandizing, a
point where the settlers in the neigh
borhood went for supplies for their fami
lies. The old weather-worn building yet
stands as a landmark of primitive times
and as a reminder of earlier days. It
bears its age well and bravely holds up
its head amid the more pretentious im
provements of the valley. Its faded red
front and old style, the quaint stories
told.of its early history, and the good*
olden time memories intertwined in its
checkered career, make it yet an object
of much interest to those who are curious
about the reminiscences of early times.
What tales are connected with that old
“red front!” Of what hopes and fears,
joys and sorrows, troubles and disappoint
ments and hardships of frontier life has it
been the active scene. It stands, not far
from where the intrepid Brady and hie
three comrades put to death the thirteen
Indians, who had burnt the home of a
settler; but a short distance from where
Brady, single banded, rescued Jennie
Stupes and child, from the clutches of a
band of Indians; and nearly on the bank
of that wild little run, that has passed
into histoy as Brady’s Run. To one stand
ingjby that old relic, and listening to the
soughing of the wind in the trees, as it
issues from the month of the glen, and
the gentle rippling of the waters, cours
ing their way from the hill sides, or in a
storm, roaring and dashing like a moun
tain torrent, ihere is given a short of
retrospective vision, in which there rises
before the mind, sights and scenes that
now fascinate, now cardie the blood, and
always must create oh the
mind, that shall give us a deeper rever
ence for those daring men and women
who have turned the forest into a garden
and made it bloom for ns.
A few years after the building of the
old “red front,” Sharon was for all time
given a prominent place in history, as
being a place where Aaron Burr had fitted
out a part ol his expedition for the found
ing of the empire of which he was to be
the headland ruler. The spot is yet dis
tinctly pointed but where the operations
for this celebrated expedition was carried
on, and the different parts of the work
assigned toeachis related. The time of j
this occurrence was in the year 1806, and
the place, near where the old "red front”
is yet standing. The boat yard was lo
cated on the flat which has been already
mentioned, and was for a time a place of
great industry and activity. The point
chosen was an excellent one for the work, i
While it is contiguous to the Ohio river,
it was at that time a retired spot, and !
well calculated for the plottings of trea
son. Tfntther was in abundance, in the
whole valley, good saw mills were in op- j
©ration and experienced workmen were
available. It is related, that some of the !
most favorably known and patriotic citi
zens of Beaver Valley to-day, are the de-,
■ scendants of men who supplied Burr’s
agents with goods and wares and the
necessary articles for his outfit. In doing
what they did, those good fathers had not
the remotest thought of “aiding and abet
ting” a rebellion against their country,
but trafficked with the wonld-be insur
gents, as they trafficked daily with their
neighbors. Barr sent two men to Sharon
as his representatives and business man
agers of the work done at that place.
Their names were respectively, Tyler
and Smith. They had the entire super
intendence of everything that was done,
from the procuring of the necessary ma
terial, for the construction of the boats,
the supplies necessary for use in the out
fit of the boats; the produce, &c., for use
in the trip down the rivers, and, indeed,
all needed articles of materials to make
the venture a success, was done under
their persona] supervision and care.
They employed, as the superintendent
of the boat building department, a man
. -* r
• , . ■- .v -r-

*- v ./*■ • ((
by the nathe df Aniasi* ijrown, who had
the. Sole charge of this work* and under
whose direction the entire fleet of boats
was built and put in proper order for the
descent of the Ohio river. The necessary
workmen were employed by Brown, oc
cupying a house adjoining the "old red
front." .The style of the boat was similar
to that of the olden time coal boats, ex
cept that Burr’s boats were closely cov
ered—which used to cover the bosom of
the Honongahela river during a rise, and
were so extensively and universally used
before the advent of barges- Burr’s
boats were from sixty to seventy teet in
length, and were capable of holding a
large quantity of such gooda as he wished
to take along with the expedition.
They were generally called the "Orleans
-r~K£?' '
They were of first class material and in
every way very well calculated for the
subsequent use to which they w.ere put.
The lumber used in construction of the
boats, together with all necessary articles
required for the outfit of the boats, were
furnished to Messrs. Tyler & Smith, by
Mr. Isaac Wilson from bis store, he then
occupying the red front as a store room
for general traffic.
He procured the lumber from the mills
then in operation in Fallston and Brigh
ton. The mill in Fallston subsequently
became the tub factory, and the mill in
Brighton, was once standing on the site
of the present noble flouring mill. All
the lumber used, first passed through Mr.
Wilson’s bands, before getting into the
possession of Tyler & Smith. * The flour
was procured by Mr. Wilson* from the
mills in the valley, and the mfeat and the
general produce were also the products
of the valley. The payments for these
articles, were promptly made by the
superintendents to Mr. Wilson, by drafts
on New Tork, all of which were in turn
bonered except the last draft, which was
protested, but not until after the expedi
tion had left the waters of the Beaver and
had passed some distance down the Ohio.
During the progress of the work at Shar
on, and the prompt payment of all ex
penses incurred, the neighborhood was
quite prosperous, and no doubt the minds
of the people were-* raised with high ex.
pectations, of the great benefits that it
would inure to the country by this boat
building. A few years later, and boat
building was one of the things of the
past on the banks of Beaver. During
the progress oi the work at Sbaron>
Burr once visited the scene of operat ions,
to inspect the work done and to give di
rections for future movements. Connect
ed with the fleet, was a gentleman by the
name of McCaslin, who was the Physician
or Medical Director.
During the stay at Sharon, an incident
is related of the wife of this gentleman,
which is a peculiarly forcible illustration
of the adventurous spirit of the times,
and of the great changes already witness
ed in our valley, from hardships and .in
conveniences to comparative ease and all
needed appliances for comfort and con
venience. This lady was then stopping
in Buffalo. The Dr. was very desirous
that she should join him at Sharon, but
was enable to leave his post and go after
her. He knew the trip would be of one
peculiar difficulty, and attended with
great inconvenience and some considera
ble suffering and hardships. It was
finally decided that she should undertake
the trip through the wild and almost to
tally uninhabited country intervening
between them, which to say the least of
Jt, was enough to appall the heart of the
stoutest of women. As the Dr. could not
leave to go after her, it was necessary to
procure some one else as an escort. He
was not long in choosing a strong, reso
lute, good fellow from among the party,
who agreed to make the trip. After suit
able preparations, the escort started on
his trip, taking with him one horse and a
man’s saddle, upon which be safely made
bis way to Buffalo. Immediately upon
his arrival he bunted the lady up, who is
described as having been a very highly
cultivated and beautiful woman, and as
well sensitive and delicate, the last person
in the world to choose for such a trip.
But the return trip was commenced, the
only conveyance in their reach being that
which the escort rode from Sharon to
Buffalo. The question may have occur
red tp their minds, as to just how they
were! to mane the trip vn such a manner;
but if so, history has failed to record it,
though it is recorded that they got safely
through in some manner with the meanr
in their power. They passed through
some very miserable swamps, known as
the Cataraugus swamps, on the way and
penetrated the Indians reservations. In
making such a journey it. is fairly pre
sumable that they did not find it a source
of enjoyment. Several night they were
I required to camp out, with nothing but
the blue canopy of heaven above'them for
their shelter, and a lap of mother earth
for their resting place. Hot even a friend
ly hut openedWs rude door for a shelter
or retreat.
'They suffered together the necessary
hardships arid vicissitudes of camp life. I
wonder how many oftbe blooming, bright
eyed maidens of Bridgewater, would un
dertake such a trip for any compensa
tion, even to the finding at the end oi
the cheerless journey, a devoted hus
band ?
In its early history, Sharon had the
usual “ups and downs”, of other Tillages,
and probably saw its most prosperous
days in its early existence. After a lapse
ol time, it Was merged into the borough
of Bridgewater, with whose history its
