Remembering Buildings and Businesses Lost to History
The beauty of Northport Village and the neighborhoods that make up our community is found in the layers of history so many of the old buildings hold. The tower of the Thompson Building, the church spires, the trolley tracks and the beautiful Victorian homes and old farmhouses provide stories about the families and businesses who contributed to the history and character of the town.
Here we will look at some of the properties that have been lost to development and change, and remember what used to be.
