Johnsburg Historical Society explores history of local businesses

— Many local businesses have been town of Johnsburg landmarks for generations, and some newer businesses also have become associated with the town’s appealing image. Johnsburg Historical Society is launching a new project which will recognize the contributions of these businesses to Johnsburg’s attraction as a mecca of natural beauty, recreation, amenities and friendliness.

The Heritage Business Exhibit project will display 8 – 10 photographic images of a featured business, will advertise, and will draft text describing the subject’s history throughout the years it has been in existence. An individual business will be on display for three months in the Town of Johnsburg Library in the reading room. After three months a different business will be featured in this ongoing, rotating project.

JHS will be responsible for digitizing images and writing the narrative labels. The exhibit will be featured in newspaper articles, in the annual JHS newsletter, on the JHS website, and on the JHS Facebook page. It is hoped that local businesses will participate in this endeavor to recognize and promote a significant foundation of the town, its business enterprises.

Questions and responses may be addressed to committee persons Sally Heidrich, Jack Masten and John Stafford at 251-5788.
