Title: Sale of Real Estate
File Attachment:
Attachment Type:

An evidence of the increased prosperity of Williamsport may be seen in the fact that real estate within the corporation limits sells readily and at fair prices. Among the sales we notice that of the well known "Bee Hive," by Wm. H. Best to Amos Jackson, at the round sum of seventy-five dollars. Our friend "Billy," seeing the chances for speculation running high, immediately purchased the neat cottage house and lot belonging thereto, in the lower part of the town, of Mrs. Roxa Florea at the almost extravagant price of forty-five dollars. And last of all, our enterprising fellow-townsman, John Williams, recently sold his beautiful residence on "crawfish commons," to the City Marshall, for the sum of five dollars, cash in hand. We have reliable information to the effect that Marshall Belangea intends moving the said building to the "Rail Road," for a Hotel and Boarding House. Such an "institution" is much needed at that point, and the citizens there will no doubt give the worthy Marshall a "lift" towards effecting so praiseworthy an object.
