The Baldwin-Whitehall Patch has partnered with the Baldwin Historical Society to bring you a weekly trivia question that delves into our area's colorful past.
Pat Lombardi and Patty Woehler, co-presidents of the society, generously write the questions and provide the pictures.
Here is this week's question:
This is a painting by Russell Smith in 1834 of Saw Mill Run.
The painting shows the production of a commodity that was and still is used by almost everyone.
The commodity was found when mining for coal. It came from a flowing well, or spring, which produced 15 barrels of the stuff per day.
The firm in charge manufactured four grades: dairy, extra No. 1, No. 1 and coarse.
