What is currently Ephrata’s Smithton Inn went on public sale in early September of 1979, as more than 1,000 gathered to watch the proceedings run by T. Glenn and Timothy G. Horst, auctioneers. The former Henrich Miller House at 904 West Main, built in 1763, was sold to Allen Smith of Ephrata for $56,500. Smith, an architect, reportedly bought the property with the expressed purpose of restoring it to its original condition.
