Officials debate its role in downtown renaissance
One Middletown Borough Council member has proposed tearing it down in favor of parking.
But it appears more likely that the so-called McNair House at North Union and East Emaus streets will remain standing – and perhaps even enjoy a starring role in the new borough downtown that is now unfolding as part of the streetscape project.
Not that it was planned that way.
The original intent was to build a large pavilion as part of the streetscape that would have blocked the front of the McNair House from the view of people walking and driving by along Union Street.
