Here's a then & now that we haven't seen on any of the internet sites before. We were able to get a copy of this picture with our new scanning gizmo. This photo is on display in the River Museum's Wellsville Room. It enlarges quite nicely for a better look.
The Hotel Shaffer was located at 12th & Main Streets in Wellsville. It's street address was probably 1201 Main. According to information on the back it was later called the Central Hotel. There was a McAlisters Dairy Store located there in later years. Sorry we can't fill you in on more information especially on dates. Possibly some one can help fill in the blanks. We vaguely remember a building being there at one time. It's been a vacant lot for sometime now.
It is now owned by the Village of Wellsville. It's a good spot for commercial development of some sort.
