Paxson & Croasdale Building, Newtown, PA

Paxson & Croasdale Building, Newtown, PA
Built by Moses Paxson and brother-in-law John Wilson Croasdale in 1853. During Civil War, the third floor was used for making infantry top coats. This building was many things through the years: bank, pharmacy, feed store, haberdashery, grocery store, dry goods shop, confectionery, children's apparel shop, and lodging. It was also a very important stop on the Philadelphia Electric Trolley route from 1895-1905.
Over the years, this building has remained virtually unchanged. Ned's Cigar Store has occupied the south end since 1940 & Countryside Gallery & Custom Frame Design the north end since 1980.
