The most fashionable street of Middletown's flourishing Victorian era boasts a series of ostentatious homes. They include the Queen Anne-style house (1890s) at 12 N. Cass Street, with generous porch and fish-scale-shingled upper walls, which was erected by a lumberyard owner. Former Governor Benjamin T. Biggs, farmer and railroad director, built the three-story Italianate house at Number 210 in 1876, with one of the first central heating systems in the state.
