— The Museum in the Streets —When James Langworthy built this Federal style structure in 1835, Market Street, which the building faces, was little more than a cow path leading to a watering hole. But as both a home and store, it was one of more than thirty businesses in Belfast in the 1830s and over the years has housed a variety of commercial establishments and residential apartments (photo c. 1920). In 1975 the building was acquired by the Belfast Historical Society and is now home to the Belfast Museum. The Museum, which is open to the public during the summer months, is committed to the collection, conservation, and preservation of artifacts and archival materials relevant to Belfast history.
