Brownstone Café (Farmers’ Trust Company of Middletown)
Richardsonian Romanesque denoted urban aspirations in many an American town at the end of the nineteenth century. This was an unusually sophisticated example that has now been adapted as a café. Farther west at the river is the so-called Swatara Ferry House, the home of the ferry operator (c. 1790), together with a small frame church that was moved to the site as a historical relic. The town square at Main and Union streets is typical of Pennsylvania's town plans.
