Medieval Fonts: Middletown High School

Only a year after the Romanesque Revival fraternity house (earlier), we find a similar medievalizing font on Middletown's High School. The building is full of historical quotations and font styles.

Arabic numeral are an interesting class of characters because they lack direct medieval precedent. The numbers here are ornately curvy. The building's eclecticism can be seen in the inconsistent use of fonts, such as the two "HIGH SCHOOL" inscriptions both from the north facade.

Location: Pearl and Court Sts., Middletown, CT 06457
