Main Street Middletown is the proud new owner of the Bussard Barbershop. These small, rather simple buildings standout because of the oversized Gothic Revival architectural detailing. Described as the “tiny jewels” of Main Street, they are being rehabilitated into a new use – as a Welcome Center and the Main Street office. Follow along with us on social media as we document this exciting transformation!
