1000 Main Street
1000 Main Street, next to 1006 Main, was built in the 1850's of Board and Batten siding
and  stout timber. Oral tradition claims the building was part of the Underground Railroad
and research is continuing for documentation. A Historic Assessment was prepared in 2001
and released in 2002.  It is the planned home for the
Academy of Building Conservation
