Inscription.  In 1769 a Delaware Indian bequeathed this land to Frederick Post, a missionary. Post sold the land to Bezaleel Wells, who laid out the original town plat in 1805. Hugh Cunningham purchased Lot #1 from Wells in 1811 for $67.00. Since that time, there have been various businesses on Lot #1 such as Dannemiller Grocery, Spiro Clothing and City Loan and Savings. The present building standing on Lot #1 was built in 1910.
