Middletown - Main Street
Description: This photograph shows a portion of South Main Street, towards Central Avenue, in Middletown, Ohio. Rails and power lines for an electric streetcar run down the middle of the bustling street. A sign for State Routes 4 and 73 can be seen in front of the church, which stands at the northeast corner of 1st Avenue and South Main Street. The church on the right has been demolished, however the Sorg Theatre, located at 65 S. Main St., is still standing, and renovations began in 2009 to return the Ford style theater to it's original splendor. Just past the theater is Eureka Confectionery, which was most likely owned by George Eliopoulos, and which was located at 327 S. Main Street. A Sears Roebuck store can be seen just before the Middletown Savings and Loan Building, which stands at the southeast corner of South Main Street and Central Avenue. The tall building at the north west corner of S. Main St. and Central Avenue was the First National Bank. Just before that is the U.S. Hotel and V.W. Bond Co. Furniture. Many of these buildings have been demolished. View on Ohio Memory.
