Shreve, Ohio
This video is of Shreve, Ohio which began in 1853 as a place for the Pennsylvania Railroad to obtain water and fuel (there was
plenty of wood for burning). There was a large spring named "Stouts," located near Bald Hill.  So, the railroad depot was built in
Shreve, and was located on the east side of North Market Street.  The old town pump where residents got water from, stood near the
wood shed at the depot.  You can read more about the history of Shreve at the village's website:
