1. Harth-Middleton House Marker
Inscription. John Harth, planter and lumber merchant, built this handsome house at his lumber yards, then at the end of the south bay, in 1797. In 1816, he sold the house to Henry Augustus Middleton, who enlarged it, and whose family continued to own it until 1917. The notable garden was created after the extension of South Battery by the boulevard land fill.
