Medieval Fonts: Russell Library

The Henry Russell Library at Middletown was established in 1874 by taking over a pre-existing church building. Its datestone, a wooden crest attached to the two main entrance porches, has a slender, elongated and Romantic medieval font. The numbers thin out in the middle, enlarge a the ends and curve dramatically.
