Excerpt from article on WNY Heritage website at http://wnyheritagepress.org/features/gatling_boom.htm
"The shoe factory [associated with the failed Gatling Land Boom] was sold to George Heath of North Evans
who tore it down and used the lumber to make a house for his berry pickers.
Later, he tore that building down and used the lumber again for an addition to his home."
