This is a section of a Sanborn Map.  They were produced for insurance companies to help determine insurance rates for businesses and home owners across the country.  This cut shows the intersection of Monroe St. and Railroad St. (misnamed Main St.) in 1918.  The elevator is on the upper right corner of that intersection and the Sebring House Hotel across the street to the left and  next to the post office and bank.  Miller's Opera House can be seen on Monroe St. across the road from the elevator and to the right.  Some of these maps appear in our book.
