1889 - Salamanca's Streets Washed.

News
SALAMANCA, June 5. - People moved out in boats from their houses on William, Water and Allegany streets and the lower end of river street. The iron bridge is unsafe, and no one is allowed to cross it except on urgent business. All churches except the Catholic were closed on Sunday, and the schools are closed. J. G. Fitt's saw mill is badly damaged, and many thousand feet of lumber went down stream. Patterson Bros.' mill and lumber yard on River street were entirely surrounded by torrents of water. All the gardens along the river are washed out.
