in the town of Niagara, Niagara County.

Landowners as listed on the 1860 village map.

The map has a business directory listed, which I suspect was a paid advertisement type of thing.

Some names are listed more than once, indicating more than one establishment owned.

It must be noted that all buildings at the time are marked on this map, but only the following few were identified.

* = unreadable
** = unnamed
B.S. = Blacksmith
Est = Establishment
Res = Residence
S.H. = School House
S.M. = Saw Mill
