1. O'Donnell House Marker
Inscription.  The only surviving 19th century structure associated with the once important livery trade centered on lower French Street.

Built in 1879 for attorney George DeCamp, the house was sold in 1881 to Arthur O'Donnell. He operated a livery stable next door in the barn of Erie pioneer Juda Colt from 1876 until the barn was razed in 1906 to make way for the firehouse. O'Donnell House was modified for commercial use about 1910.
 
Erected 1985 by Erie County Historical Society.
