Field Investigation Observations

Land Use

On-site Landuse
A Salvation Army retail outlet occupies the majority of this site. The store and parking areas cover most of the area with grass which extends along Market Street approximately 20' in width. The site may overlap slightly onto Burns & McBride to the north and the Schwartz & Sons right-of-way to the south.



Adjacent Landuse
This site is surrounded by industrial and heavy commercial uses. Burns & McBride borders the site to the north and Schwartz & Sons Steel Pipe to the south and west. To the east across Market Street are a parking area, an auto store and an abandoned car wash.


Presence of Children

Although it is not a residential area, it can reasonably be assumed that children frequent the area. The only play area, however, is quite close to Market Street/Route 13 and likely serves only as a buffer between traffic and the store.


Exposed Soil

A large grass area is located between the parking lot for the store and Route 13. The Burns & McBride and Schwartz & Sons roadways are gravel with exposed soil and may also overlap the historic outline.
