Downtown Mount Morris, NY is a quarter-mile of classic row style buildings that feature business space on the first floor, and in most cases residential apartments on the upper levels. Many have beautifully restored fronts; there are several shops, restaurants, salons, and agencies that have become staples for locals and visitors alike.
Efforts have been made to maintain the historic aspects of the Village, including restoration of ad murals, and the return of the bronze eagle monument that once stood proudly in the center of Main Street, but had spent decades in a cemetery after it was moved for its own protection in 19311 as the automobile gained popularity and passing trucks began to clip it. Fun story, the bronze eagle was stolen in the early 1990s, but was eventually returned to its rightful perch atop the monument.2
At the North side of Downtown, the Mills Mansion was the home of the founder of Mt. Morris, NY General William A. Mills. Today, the home is a museum piece with fully original 19th century living spaces. It also acts as the headquarters for the Mount Morris Historical Society.3
