1. 8 West Main Street Marker
Inscription. The dwelling located here at #8 West Main Street is significant as an early 19th century vernacular log building that was modified in the ca. 1930's with the application of a simulated Flemish bond brick veneer facade. It reflects the development of the first block of West Main Street, which began with the ownership of Michael Jesserong, then Conrad Crone and finally Phillip Clovinger, who seems to have developed the entire block. This building, along with its neighbors on either side, forms a unified street wall that embodies the history and development of Middletown.
