Once lined with shade trees and featuring a public fountain in the town green, the Duncannon Square has been the center of activity since the very beginning.
The square featured the National Hotel in the northwest corner and the Laird Hotel in the southwest. The Johnston replaced the National after a fire in the early 1900s but used much of the original foundation. It was renamed the Doyle in the 1940s.
The fountain was used for watering horses and was often times elaborately decorated for holidays.
