1. S. Dale Kaufman Marker
Inscription.  S. Dale Kaufman, senior partner in the architectural firm of Haak, Kaufman, Reese and Beers, was the principle architect in the nationally recognized restoration of this market which captured the 1976 H.U.D. honor award for design excellence. A resident of Strasburg, Pennsylvania, for over 30 years, Kaufman was an outstanding civic leader and served 29 years in the U.S. Corps of Engineers, retiring as Lieutenant Colonel. His wisdom in initiating as few design modifications to the building as possible guaranteed a truly authentic restoration of the Market's character.
