36 River St.
This solidly built multi-story brick Italianate style building has a hipped roof; a stained glass window on the west side; and arched brick surrounds. This River Street building just south of the former American Hotel has a varied history. It was erected about 1890 as a depot for Stegmaier Brewing Co. of Wilkes-Barre and deliveries were made from here by horse drawn wagons. Q.A. Kline, who had been a railroader, supervised construction of the building and then served as manager for many years. He died in 1918 and with the coming of prohibition the beer depot died too.
For a time the building remained empty but a Towanda directory shows that the Dairymen's League was operating a receiving and distribution plant for milk in 1929.
