The Alta Heiser Collection Index Vol. 2, January 6, 1940 & December 27, 1943. Boot and Shoe makers of an earlier day. It seems that always there were tanyards north of Main Street and around the lower end of Boudinot in Rossville, Butler County, Ohio. This was near the best business section and also a good residential district, and there was frequent complaint about the unsightliness of these tanyards. Previous to 1819, John Sutherland and William Irwin owned a tanyard at Main Street and the River . When they wished to sell, they advertised that there were 46 vats, a bark house and shed and 300 cords of bark. They also wished to sell the good dwelling house near by. This had its own well, right at the door, and the garden had a paling fence.
