1. Detwiler House Marker
Inscription. Samuel Detwiler lived in this house in 1905 when he was the town liveryman. With the demise of the horse and buggy, he and his son Frank began a dairy farm. Their barn was located where the Post Office now stands. Each day they would herd their cows down Main St. to a pasture on the other side of the railroad tracks. The dairy flourished until 1949. This house was renovated in 1985 and again in 2013.
