Description


Excerpt from Better Binghamton: A Report to the Mercantile-Press Club of Binghamton, N. Y., September 1911

As Mr. Seward tells the story, Whitney' 'had learned the exact location of a bridge to be built across the Chenango and dropped into Keeler's tavern to tell the news. He said, 'you had better stop building here, the village will be built down where the bridge is built, ' and the 'boys' then and there agreed to have a 'chopping bee' the next day and make a clearing for the coming of the bridge. The next morning Joshua Whitney, Selah Squires and four other men took their axes and floated down stream in a canoe, landing at an elm tree on the east side of the river.
