Pierce Downer’s Well
Location: 4448 Seeley Ave
Date built: circa 1832

Pierce Downer, who arrived in 1832, was the village’s first settler. This well, recognized as a Historic Site in 2013,  was across from the Downer home, is one of two shallow wells he dug on his property. One well was for people and one well was for livestock. Because of its proximity to the house this well probably supplied the Downer family with water for cooking, drinking and bathing.
