He built the first house here. Previous village around a salt spring just «-ons, also had a place in Saline, but all are gone now. The only factory here now is a handle factory, owned by Thomas Shurtz, and two flour mills south of the village. Tile first church to be established was the Baptist, in 1831, on May 20. In that year twelve members of the Presbyterian church of Newark, "N. Y., came to Saline, on May 29, 1831 and on July 18 they met and took the name of the Presbyterian church of SMine. , The Methodist society was organiz- i| in 1833. ""The first school inside the village was built in 1830 and I have been told it stood about where Ben Uphaus now lives. The first brick school house stood on the lot occupied by the residences of Fred Burkhart and Dr. T. B. to this Saline had been the home of the Red men, who had a flourishing Henderson. The present school build- ing was built in 1868. south of the present village, and a ! '.fhe post office was established in burying ground on the-'east-bank of Saline river, which was -much larger than at the present time. Many Indian relics have "been found in this resting place of the dead. In the winter of 1794-95 General I Anthony Wayne camped just south of j town on land now owned by William ; H. Barr. The burying ground was j just back of Wayne's camping place, j The second white settler was Dan- I iel Cross, who built near Miller, and ! their places were used as taverns, or | inns,' as they were often called. ! Orrin Fuller came in 1828, Samuel Cross and George Miller in 1830. Orange Risdon purchased his land in 1324 but did not settle until some years later. The first school house in the township was bir'* about a mile west of the present village in the winter of 1830-31. It was mainly through the efforts of Russell Briggs that this was accomplished. The first mill was a saw mill, erected by Chester and Orrin Parsons, about two miles south of the village. The first frame house to be built was erected by Orrin Parsons in 1829. It is still standing" and is occupied by Harold Finch. In August, 1824, Orange Risdon entered the northeast quarter of section 1. He selected the foundation of a future great city. Surrounded on ail sides by lovely, fertile country capable of providing food in abundance, and also water for manufacturing purposes, it seemed an ideal spot for a village. In 1832 Mr. Risdon platted the village to which he gave the name of Saline, after the river and township, which already had been named. Since 1830, with Orange Risdon as postmas ter. Although Mr. Risdon's dream of a great city has not come true, Saline is a fine village and with a few improvements would be one of the finest villages in Michigan. Mrs. Agnes Barr. the original survey several additions have been made as they were needed, the first one in January, 184S, by David S. Haywood. After this none were made until the railroad was completed. In May A. H. Risdon made a large addition to the village and a few months later one was nd- ded by Harvey Bennett, who surveyed and platted a number of blocks in Lodi township, adjoining the village on the north, and in 1871 Russell Mills made another addition. Orange Risdon built the first house in the village, which for ten years was used for a tavern. The first store in the village was established by a Mr. Finch and it was in the parlor of Mr. Risdon's house. In 1832 Mr. Finch erected the first store building, on the corner of Michigan avenue and Ann Arbor street, the site now occupied by the Saline Savings Bank. The second to enter business was Caleb VanHusen. In 1863 a company was formed by men of the village and township to manufacture salt. A building was erected and a derrick put up, but af- rer three unsuccessful attempts to sink a well the project was abandoned- There has always existed a doubt in the minds of many whether the contractor acted in good faith. That salt has been made here in years gone by is proved. Iron kettles have oeen found which had been used for that purpose. Saline has never been noted as a manufacturing center, yet there has always been more or less of it done here. The Schuyler mill was "built in 1848 by Schuyler Hevwood. A mi; is still standing in the same,,, is idle. In 1870 Schairer Brothers established an extensive business in making wagons, buggies,-and fine carriages. Some of their buildings are still standing. In 1853 James Seeley started a tannery business on Henry street. This was purchased"* by Christian Helber and later given to his son, Eugene NEWSY NOTES FROM s THE CLINTON "LOCAL .^NTothing has been heard of Mrs. Merle Greenfield, who disappeared on the evening of September 29, after an automobile accident near the Bridgewater town hall.
