Garage Door

Most of Middletown is pretty, but sometimes you'll walk past something that appears old and abandoned.

Interstate 70

I-70 cuts a path through the north part of Middletown Valley. Middletown itself doesn't have a direct exit, but one way in is by way of the Myersville exit shown somewhere in this picture. Notice the yellow and orange of fall is just beginning to show in the trees; and the same colors show all year in the McDonald's sign (that spec near the center).

Closed Business

The economy got it. This hardware store and design center in the heart of town went out of business a few months ago. It was a landmark and I believe it was around for decades. I shopped there a few times - friendly staff, interesting product mix, including items not found in the big box home centers.

This was the display in a booth at the Middletown Heritage Festival last week.

No Traffic

It's fun being able to walk in the middle of Main Street, also called US Highway Alt 40. This part of the street is closed for several hours on the day of the Middletown Heritage Festival.

Theme Day: Contrast

Contrast can mean many things. In this case, in case you hadn't guessed, the contrast is 'old vs. new.' Andrew and Tiffany are dressed in the period costumes from the American Civil War of the 1860s using their digital camera and cell phone from the 2000s. They are regular visitors to this website and participate in the Signal Corps demonstration during the Middletown Heritage Festival.
