1. The Quarton Building Marker
Inscription. Fred V. Quarton erected this building in 1916 on the site of the family home of his wife, Emma Blakeslee. Through the years, the facade at street level has changed several times, but the second floor has kept its original appearance even including the metal cornice with its four distinctive metal spheres and the letters of the name Quarton just under it. The Levinson family, present owners of this building, purchased it prior to the Great Depression, and have owned it for over 70 years.
