kiwidan there it is, the house is probably not part of the can town area but it is close, a few communites were close , there is another that has nothing original left that is called Edgartown that was on the sandrige. it was a few blocks north. I posted an apartment called Kings inn that is where that was. it is way after Edgartown. that was a fishing community separate from can town and they either fished or hunted when the fishing wasn't so easy and all left their guns on a tree and each person wouldn't touch another gun and they all knew whose gun was what.

Can Town


In the late nineteenth century, the area along the south bank of Moore’s Creek, (modern day Avenue A and Indian River Drive) went by this name because of a large seafood canning plant located there. The plant was closed in 1896. The building was purchased by Peter P. Cobb and converted into a general store. Can Town became part of the new city of Fort Pierce in 1901.
courtesy of the st.lucie county historical society. its a brief synopsis there are other men and ladies who mention hogg, p.p. cobb. both owned the general store and its tied to my county as Gifford mentioned him and on other as hogg was a caring man who gave out credit to the poor when in need and helped all that he could.

Edgartown


Located on the north side of Moore’s Creek, (present day North 2nd Street and Avenue D), Edgartown was the site of the first settlement of what was to become Fort Pierce. It was named for Edgar Bowman, the grandson of one of the early settlers. Because there were no docks in the area, the wood used to construct the original buildings had to be pushed into shore by swimming construction workers.

i couldn't imagine gathering food suppilies in 1911 and the coal plant next door chugging. there was power plant that was next door that was there from 1911 to 2008. it was a two stack one and not as big as big blue but had probably more capacity in that it had more units it was converted from coal to cng/oil.
