A rendering of the northwest (Main Street) entrance of CITY CENTRE MART, circa-1975. Middletown's "center city-saving" shopping mall would never live up to the great expectations held for it in the late 1960s and early '70s.
One of many classic mall and retro retail internet sites, the MALL HALL OF FAME is a "Mid-mod Mall Museum", centered on American shopping centers built during the mid-20th century (1946-1979). There are short articles, photos, and at least one physical layout drawing for every mall inducted. Please check your favorite mall articles often as new content is frequently being added.
