I have often written how prominent citizens of the past told of the early years of Robert Chambders' Chambersburg. Even though Robert's Chambersburg was the area of the old Chambersburg Hotel at Cass and South Broad Streets, the orchards, corn fields and open farm land were later taken over by developers and slowly but surely the area streets when laid out ultimately filled up with row upon row of adjoining houses. This map is one of my favorite views of the Burg as it looked in the year 1872. It is difficult to imagine that the area was so sparsely settled. The street names are dedicated to military officers from the Civil War.
