This biography, and the associated picture, was contributed by Joyce Munro, of Bryn Mawr, PA. She and her husband researched the Henry Huth family who owned the Riverside Hotel and several other businesses in Milton. The biography is about Nathaniel Huth, Henry's son, who ran an oyster saloon in the basement of the hotel during the 1870s and became proprietor of the European Hotel in the 1880s. Nat Huth moved to Brookville in 1897 so the essay begins in Milton and ends in Brookville.
