Circa 1800Presumably built by Philip Clovinger, 10 West Main began as a one-story log dwelling constructed in the early 1800's. In 1821 Thomas Powell, described as Middletown's first blacksmith, acquired the property and improved the building for commercial use. C.F. Main purchased the dwelling house along with 12-14 West Main in 1911. The Main family lived in the house for a short time and the south end room was used for storing ice cream cones. The building contains a variety of late 18th century architectural features, and is a contributing resource to Middletown's Historic District.
