... a hotel on the northeast corner of East Broad Street, one block from the train station, at a traveler's junction... to the east, the head end of the Doylestown Pike & to the north... the road to Hellertown, winding through Richland and Springfield Townships toward Easton... originally built about 1795 and expanded in 1832. Illustrated circa early 1900's. The Eagle Hotel still stands on the corner, though the building was stripped of its grandeur a long time ago.
