Sugar Grove Township 


Riley's Corners


About fifty years ago [about 1827], Cornelius Riley opened a tavern, at Riley’s Corners, on the road extending northward into Crawford, which was the first road in [Sugar Grove] township. This hotel was kept open for a number of years, until the death of its proprietor, who was killed between his house and Greenville. Co-temporary with the hotel a store was established by James Nesbit, near the present [1877] Nesbit residence.
