The Snyder Homestead in Springwater NY



This photo shows the Stanley Snyder homestead on Main street Springwater NY. The view is looking south along Main street. The second house just visible is the Capron Derrinbacher house. The Springwater Creek at that time ran in front of the houses and there were bridges that crossed over to the houses. The date of the photo is circa 1900.

See the Snyder home on the Springwater village map of 1872 below.
