This is downtown Milton, according to Ralph Turner, Richard McCoy and Ken Reffeitt. In the far background is a funeral home, according to Turner. "I think that three- or four-story building was a department store," he wrote. "I think there was a fire in that building several years ago. The building still stands, but I don't believe the fire damage was ever repaired." Date is unknown. Reffeitt thinks this is the old north side of Main Street. "That would be the old train station on the right of the photo, of which we get only a small glimpse," he wrote. "It was in the middle of Main Street (Rt. 60) before it was widened. The building at the end of the street was the forerunner of the Heck Funeral Home, as it was in the building next door until it took over the corner building as it is now." McCoy said the original route of the C&O Railway split the town in half, thus a North and South Main with the tracks in-between. "Plagued by frequent flooding from the Mud River, the C&O relocated to its current location along the hillside to the south of town," he wrote.
