Edwin L. and Almira R. Butts to J. B. Drew....Q.C.....same description as above.........

1888 TAX RECORDS lists C. C. Alfred as 1 poll @ $2 DREW - Value $25

1889 TAX RECORDS lists One-half interest in rink C. C. Alfred and J. B. Alfred - Total Value $400

C. C. Alfred - $25 Lot - $175 Rink J. B. Alfred $200 - Rink= $375 Skating Rink Value

I expect the rink was built the summer of 1888 as this tax record is dated May 1889.
