Villages on the Line of the Railroad. ZALESBURGH.- This place is situated seven miles from Manitowoc-contains a population of some two hundred-has two water, and one steam saw mill, one store, one blacksmith shop, and one commodious hotel. A large amount of lumber and shingles is manufactured and sent to market from here yearly. It is a pleasant and healthy location, and as soon as the Railrowd is finished will increasse largely in size and business. HARRIS' CORNERS.- Situated twelve miles from Manitowoc, has been built up within the last two years-has a splendid steam mill, two stores, blacksmith shop, an elegant church building, and a most extensive new hotel in course of erection. This place will grow when the Railroad is built, as there will be a Station there. MAPLE GROVE CORNERS.- This village is distant from Manitowoc fourteen miles, is located in the centre of a finely improved country-contains one hundred population-has one tavern, two stores, and one blacksmith and wagon shop. This place is also waiting for a chance to grow, and the construction of the Railroad will be of great assistance to it, as the farmers around can land their products and receive their supplies. REEDVILLE.- Located eighteen miles from here, has steam grist and saw mills, a number of new dwellings, one blacksmith and wagon shop, and a church and school house. It bids fair to be a large village when the Railroad is built. There is to be a depot here, and the proprietors are men of enterprise and capital. BRILLION.- This place is situated on Spring Creek, twenty-five miles from Manitowoc- has a beautiful location-is surrounded by a fine farming country, and many most excellent farms. It has a saw mill, and as soon as the Railroad is completed will have a steam saw and grist mill, stores and machine shops. The proprietors will aid the Railroad substantially, and are anxious for its completion. We have not space to mention other prominent points on the Road, but will do so hereafter.

Our Railway goes forward as steady as clock work, the gang of men under Robt. Blake have advanced beyond the County line and are now in the town of Brillion, Calumet County. The rails are laid as far as the Branch, where the long bridge is advancing toward an early completion Manitowoc Tribune, Aug. 24, 1871


Considerable complaint is current among the people concerning the railroad crossing near the depot. We are told that last Wednesday a freight train stopped fully 15 minutes on the crossing, obstructing the passage of teams as well as pedestrians. That is in direct violation of a city ordiance recently passed, is well known. We do not suppose that the raiload official authorize such wrongful action, but the people will hold them to account. It is their business to exercise proper discipline over their employes. Manitowoc Lake Shore Times, Tuesday, November 22, 1881 P. 1


The Goodrich Transportation Co. have been victorious in the suit brought aginst them by parties in Green Bay to recover damages for property destroyed by fire, which it was alleged was caused by sparks from one of the steamers. The case was bitterly contested by both sides and occupied three weeks in the trial. Some of the ablest attorneys in the state were engaged. The case was a test case and had it gone against the Co. other suits to the amount of $200,000 would have been commenced. Manitowoc Lake Shore Times, Tuesday, December 30, 1884 P.4

Another railroad change takes away C.W. Barlett to Ledyard. We are sorry to lose him but live in hopes that the railroad changes may return him here at no distant day. Manitowoc Lake Shore Times, November 3, 1885 P.4

DEPOT AND NO TRAINS LARRABEE, Wis.-A depot waits here for the railroad that never came. The station was built in the late 60's, and it is two and a half miles from the nearest railway. Jason Pellet was so sure the road was going to pass his place that he built a depot on a knoll which overlooked his farm. The road went up through Brillion instead.
