Webb, Frank L., p. o. Chittenango Station, the popular proprietor of the leading hotel at Chittenango Station, has been a resident of this town since 1840. At that time he was less than eight years of age, and his mother having died during his infancy, in Otsego county, he was brought up by an aunt, whose home was at Bridgeport. His father was Charles L. Webb of Otsego county, where the son was born July 12, 1832. When a boy at Bridgeport he was apprenticed to the cooper trade. In 1861 he opened a general store at Durhamville, which he sold out in 1865. Soon after he purchased a stage route from Bridgeport to Manlius Station, which he conducted five years. After a brief business venture at Marathon, N. Y., he leased a hotel in Broome county, his first experience as a landlord, in which line he has been so successful. In April. 1874, he opened a hotel at Chittenango Station, and after the disastrous fire of 1885 built the commodious modern hotel, with livery barns, etc., which he now conducts, and which is known as one of the best houses of its class in central New York. Mr. Webb is one of the staunchest of Republicans and was appointed postmaster in 1882.
