The new buildings erected in 1867 exceed fifty in number. Of these four are brick
Business blocks and eight are brick dwellings. The brick dwellings are Judge McCarn, B. Chaplin and Geo. Lehmann are on the elevations north of Main Street and present a handsome appearance. The other brick dwellings are, one beyond the depot and the balance south of Main Street. The brick business block by Mr. Lehmkuhl is a fine and sold structure, just opposite the Fisher House and of greater elevation that the Katter. The second story is a large Hall for public uses, 44x60 feet. The Hall of sufficient capacity to serve general purposes for several years to come, and the cost of the whole building was $8,000.

It should be stated here that of the business block, built by H. L. Palmer, the second story is owned by the EUREKA office and was constructed expressly for a permanent printing office. Hence, unlike most printing offices, the light, so much needed, is ample.

The woolen factory, erected by W. T. Shaw, is (words lost to crease in paper) only the machinery to put it in successful operation. Another season will probably hear the hum of its wheels. This structure is of stone, strong and able to stand the wear and tear of centuries. Nearby is abundant room for enlargement.

Of sidewalk, when we state that they have cost, during the last year $5,300, we have said enough. These walks are board and durable.

Being ion the Dubuque Southwestern Railroad, and the railroad to Muscatine certain to be built, and that to Maquoketa equally certain someday-and because it is in the very nature of things-the prospects of Anamosa, when we compare its present with what it was ten years ago, are, in the highest degree, promising.

We leave 1867 and pass 1868 with the fullest confidence in the future of our town and county.
