Allen, Arthur N., was born in Orleans county, N. Y., February 29, 1860, and is a son of Henry T. Allen, who removed to Niagara Falls in 1861, where he became proprietor of a large book, stationery and wall paper business. Arthur Allen attended the public schools at Niagara Falls and at the age of eleven years, took charge of a news stand owned by his father, in the International Hotel, which he operated without help for several years. At the age of sixteen he took his father's place in the business, where he remained until 1885, when he established himself in the same line of business. In 1888 he bought out the dry good business of Max Hutzel, which he carried on successfully for four years, when he sold out to S. D. True, and became a dealer in real estate. In 1893 he formed a partnership with George D. Belden, in the business of ticket brokerage, which he still carries on in connection with his real estate business.
