Point of Interest Details

114/116 North Main St.- Bast Homestead: As was typical of the time, the buyer would divide his lot into two properties, building his house on one and selling the other. The original cabins were 1-1/2 stories but later raised to two stories with
an attic.

The back of the property still shows signs of early ways of living as the smoke house and summer kitchen are still intact. The brick spring house at the rear of the site was built over one of the town’s main springs. At one time the hearses for Bast Funeral Home were stored here.
