Long Description:
Samuel B. Thompson owned and operated the dock and warehouses at the foot of Thompson St. (Now Wharf St., name changed about 1951). Thompson's warehouses were burned by Union soldiers in 1864. After the Civil War, Albert S. Chalker operated the docks and on July 7, 1873, was also granted the right to operate a ferry across Black Creek about 200 yards upstream from the dock.
