Site 7a. MAIN and HURON: southwest corner

   This is the site of the central square and first courthouse that were the early focus of urban development and city life. The opera house, post office, activities of banks, law and title offices, and social life generated by nearby hotels, churches and the bus station all surrounded the courthouse and identified this as the center of town.
