Middleton Landmark
The American Hotel - The Stricker Building -, in operation since 1870, has long been a "landmark" in the Middleton area. Famous for its 25 [cent] Sunday dinners and its liquid enjoyment when neighbor areas were "dry," it catered to University students, area residents and salesmen who came by horse or rail. After closing as a hotel, it remained in the Stricker family as a residence and a doctor's office. At times, this building served the community as an apartment or commercial building and as another eating place. This site is rightfully a Middleton landmark.
Designated January 25, 1978

The property is located at the northwest corner of the intersection of Parameter Street and Elmwood Avenue, at 1902 Parmenter Street, Middleton, Wisconsin 53562.

The property is located in Middleton, Wisconsin.
